2019 Human Development and Capability Association Conference
London, 9-11 September, 2019
Hosted by University College London, in partnership with the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), Birkbeck, the University of East London (UEL) and the London International Development Centre (LIDC)
The theme for the HDCA 2019 conference in London (9-11 September 2019) is Connecting Capabilities. We have chosen this theme because we think connection is an important capability that needs further consideration.
March 2019 is the date currently scheduled for Brexit. In some ways this is a national political difficulty and time of uncertainty for the UK. But in other ways Brexit reflects themes that resonate internationally - not least the impact of globalisation and the emergence of greater xenophobia and more authoritarian forms of democracy in many parts of the world. The theme of connecting capabilities gives us an opportunity to think against this grain, using ideas and networks on human development and putting the capability approach to work in new ways.
