Andrew Crabtree has been re-elected Treasurer of The Human Development and Capability Association

The Nobel prize winning economist and Harvard philosopher Amartya Sen and the philosopher Martha Nussbaum were the founding presidents of The Human Development and Capability Association (HDCA). The Association aims to promote high quality research in the interconnected areas of human development and capability analysis, including the quality of life, poverty, justice, gender, development and environment inter alia. It works in a broad range of disciplines - such as economics, philosophy, political theory, sociology, education, public health and development studies.

While primarily an academic body, the Association brings together those involved in academic work with practitioners who are involved in, or interested in, the application of research from the fields of human development and capability analysis to the problems they face. HDCA publishes a journal, the Journal of Human Development and Capabilities (JHDC), and holds an annual conference in venues around the world. The Association has some 700 members in a total of 70 countries. In addition to Sen and Nussbaum, past presidents include Frances Stewart, Kaushik Basu, Sir Tony Atkinson, and Henry Richardson. The current president is Ravi Kanbur.
