Amartya Sen

Nobel-prize winning economist Sen is regarded as one of the world’s foremost thinkers in the field of famine, poverty, social choice and welfare economics. His scholarship has notably observed that development is a measure of freedom, and that legal empowerment is an avenue by which the poor can increase freedom in the areas that most affect their capacity to progress.
