About the Authors
  • A diverse set of expert voices from the Global North and South - philosophers, economists, policy and development scholars and practitioners - explore two themes central to development ethics: agency and democracy. Established luminaries in development ethics engage with the book's themes alongside fresh voices on the way to becoming familiar figures in the field. Their essays work within diverse areas of development studies, including human security and human rights, democratic governance in theory and practice, the capability approach, gender and development, and applied and theoretical critiques of the philosophical underpinnings of various accounts of development. The result is a varied and comprehensive discussion of current work in development ethics that significantly advances our understanding of theoretical and practical work of development. This book will interest students, scholars, and practitioners of global justice, human rights, international development and political philosophy.

    • Brings together the issues of agency, democracy, participation, and ethics in global development in a single, cohesive volume
    • Offers a diverse and relevant set of essays from academics and practitioners from a variety of fields from all around the globe
    • Celebrates and builds upon the work of development ethics pioneer David A. Crocker

    Reviews & endorsements

    Advance praise: 'David A. Crocker has made crucial contributions to development ethics and the human development approach, in particular with his agency-oriented capability approach. The essays in this impressive volume testify to the great influence that David A. Crocker has had on several generations of scholars and students, and how he keeps inspiring others to take the important tasks of development ethics further. This volume will be required reading for students and scholars in development ethics, human development, capability theory, and related fields.' Ingrid Robeyns, Chair Ethics of Institutions, Universiteit Utrecht

    Advance praise: 'David A. Crocker has been a leading figure in the multidisciplinary field of developmental ethics stressing the themes of agency and participatory deliberative democracy. He has inspired a generation of thinkers throughout the North and South who engage his thinking in this splendid collection of essays. Crocker contributes to the volume by answering his critics and developing his conception of liberal perfectionism. This is an extremely lively and timely discussion of fundamental issues confronting us today.' Richard J. Bernstein, Vera List Professor of Philosophy, The New School for Social Research, New York
