The Journal of Human Development and Capabilities is the peer-reviewed journal of the Human Development and Capabilities Association. It was launched in January 2000 to provide new perspectives on challenges of human development, capability expansion, poverty eradication, human well-being, markets, growth, social justice and human rights. The human development approach recognizes that development is about more than just economic growth; it is also about improving the well-being of people, and expanding the choices and opportunities they have.
The Journal publishes original work in economics, philosophy, social sciences and other disciplines that expand concepts, measurement tools and policy alternatives in the area of human development. It provides a forum for an open exchange of ideas among a broad spectrum of policy makers and academics, addressing issues at global, national and local levels.
The human development school of thought has become increasingly influential within academic institutions as well as within government bodies and non-governmental organizations. The Journal acts as a conduit for the further advancement and critique of this approach.
