Le teorie della Disabilità: una Reinterpretazione Attraverso l'Approccio delle Capability Amartya Sen
AbstractThis paper introduces a framework based on the capability approach of Amartya Sen aiming at helping policy makers to formulate policies for disabled persons and bridging the gap between research and policy implementation. The proposed framework focuses on vulnerability in an inclusive, empowerment and dynamic perspective. It reviews the interaction between the individual and social models of disability, acknowledges human diversity, and looks at vulnerability as a multidimensional dynamic phenomenon with different types of limitations to the ‘capability’ to achieve various ‘beings and doings’ that the vulnerable person values.
