Led by the Researchers and Director of Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) of the University of Oxford, 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 will revise axiomatic poverty measures, and will learn about different techniques of multidimensional poverty measurement and which problems they are best suited to solve. The empirical motivation for measuring multidimensional poverty will be presented as well as the conceptual motivation, drawing on Sen’s Capability approach.
