Reviews

'The book's perspective is especially relevant, as the world cogitates about the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals agenda, because in the next few decades the synergies between local development and human development will become more salient than ever before.' Santosh Mehrotra, Institute of Applied Manpower Research, Government of India

'This book is a timely and innovative contribution to bridging the gap between the capability and local development literatures. The authors develop a powerful conceptual framework that is likely to become an essential starting point for policymakers and those committed to promoting sustainable human development within and across regions.' David A. Clark, University of Cambridge, UK

'A comprehensive analysis of the conditions for, and the contribution of actors to, sustainable human development at the local level. An important contribution to overcoming the traditional barriers between the social sciences in order to enrich Amartya Sen's capability approach.' Franco Volpi, University of Florence, Italy
