Inclusion, Capability and Optimal Functioning

This programme focuses on research regarding the enhancement of the capabilities of diverse individuals, groups, and institutions. The programme investigates the repertoire of strategies for working with a wide range of individual differences and creating caring, enabling and inclusive contexts which allow individuals to flourish. Differences include national origin, age, race and ethnicity, religion, belief, gender, marital status, socioeconomic status, educational background, training, disability, and personality. Research about capabilities and inclusion places dignity at its core, emphasising people as ends, not means who should be enabled to achieve the plans and goals they have reason to value.
