Enfoque de capacidades: una introducción formal
[Capability approach: a formal introduction]


  • Leon, Dorian


El enfoque de capacidades ha sido operatibilizable y un ejemplo de ello es el Índice de Desarrollo Humano y el Índice de Pobreza Multidimensional. No obstante, su carácter operativo en el ámbito de la evaluación de funcionamientos específicos tales como educación, género y pobreza desde una perspectiva difusa es aún más amplio. En ese sentido, el presente artículo tiene como objetivo brindar una aproximación formal muy breve al enfoque, principalmente centrándose en algunos de sus conceptos fundamentales.
