From September 10-13, the HDCA has invited scholars, government policy makers, practitioners, and other interested parties to participate in the 2015 HDCA conference. It will be located on Georgetown University, primarily in Gaston Hall. Georgetown University graduate students and faculty may attend the full conference, free of charge. Take advantage of this opportunity to meet and learn from a diverse range of experts and professionals who are leading the discussions in the field of human development and its relationship with mobility.
This year’s annual conference of the Human Development and Capability Association will explore how mobility and economic, social and political aspirations change the dynamics of human development. We invite you to come together with scholars, policy makers, practitioners and students interested in human development and the capabilities approach for four days of inspiring discussion on the theme "Capabilities on the Move: Mobility and Aspirations."
The conference will feature plenary addresses by Nobel Prize-winning economist James Heckman, Former President of Mexico Ernesto Zedillo, Philosopher Seyla Benhabib, and a conversation between founders of the Capabilities Approach Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum.
