OPHI Summer School 2016

The annual OPHI Summer School on Multidimensional Poverty Analysis will be held in Beijing, China, from 1-13 August 2016.

The purpose of this intensive summer school is to provide a thorough conceptual and technical introduction to some techniques of measuring multidimensional poverty with a strong emphasis on the Alkire Foster method. Participants revise axiomatic poverty measures, and learn about different techniques of multidimensional poverty measurement and which problems they are best suited to solve. The empirical motivation for measuring multidimensional poverty is presented as well as the conceptual motivation, drawing on Amartya Sen’s capability approach.
