The Individual Deprivation Measure (IDM) Program, a partnership between the Australian National University, International Women’s Development Agency and the Australian Government, will present a panel session on Wednesday 11th at the Human Development & Capability Association (HDCA) Conference in London this week.

The HDCA is a global community of academics and practitioners that seeks to build an intellectual community around the ideas of human development and the capability approach, and relate these ideas to the policy arena. The #Hdca2019 will bring together this diverse audience under the conference theme Connecting Capabilities.

The IDM’s ANU Team will lead this 90 minute panel titled Applying a gendered lens to measuring deprivation

Chaired by Sharon Bessell, the panel will speak about measuring multidimensional poverty in gender-sensitive ways, with the IDM tool as a key example. Presentations include:

  • Engendering the dimensions of poverty
    Janet Hunt, Sharon Bessell, Helen Suich, Trang Pham, Mandy Yap | Australian National University
  • Voice and agency as connecting capabilities
    Trang Pham, Sharon Bessell, Janet Hunt, Helen Suich, Mandy Yap | Australian National University
  • Time-use as a valued capability and a means towards achieving gender equality
