23620-01 - Seminar: Capabilities and Sustainability 3 KP

Semester Frühjahrsemester 2019
Angebotsmuster unregelmässig
Dozierende Marius Christen (marius.christen@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt During the last 20 years or so two development concepts have been established on a global level. Whereas sustainability is strongly committed to taking into consideration environmental issues, the capability approach focuses on poverty issues and criteria for well-being. Strange enough however, there are not many interfaces between them. Although sustainability issues also comprise poverty (justice) issues, the capability approach has little impact in sustainability research and vice versa. From a social science oriented sustainability perspective this is a very unsatisfactory situation. It reflects (in my view) the underestimation of social issues within sustainability discourses. The capability approach might offer a new perspective regarding intra- and intergenerational justice. However, such a perspective is in need to become linked to global scarcity of environmental resources. How this could be conceptually and empirically done will be the core topic of this seminar.
Lernziele Students
- know the capability approach (Sen, Nussbaum);
- are able to critically link it to core issues of sustainable development (justice, resources);
- are able to identify an empirical or a conceptual research question linking capabilities and sustainability.
Literatur A list will be handed out at the beginning of the seminar.
