Human and Social Capabilities
A central concern for this division is to focus on human beings and their development in the face of the social realities of poverty and unemployment, and inequalities of class, race and gender. In particular, this work will actively explore the ways in which agency, attitudes, aspirations, capabilities and other psychosocial factors reinforce or liberate people from the constraints imposed by their social environments.
The division comprises two programmatic approaches namely:
- The Centre for Community-based Research, and
- Impact and Research Development
