Abstract

eResearch: Strategies to model and monitor human development

eResearch: Strategies to model and monitor human development, presented at the Human Development Index 20th Anniversary Conference, at Cambridge, UK, on the 28-29 January 2010 by Sachie Mizohata of Paris Descartes University and Raynald Jadoul of Henri Tudor Research Centre

This presentation, "eResearch: Strategies to model and monitor human development", was presented by Sachie Mizohata of Paris Descartes University and Raynald Jadoul of Henri Tudor Research Centre to a workshop entitled “Twenty Years of Human Development: The past and the future of the Human Development Index.”  The workshop was held under the auspices of the Von Hugel Institute/Capability and Sustainability Network of the Univ. of Cambridge and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP)/Human Development Report Office (HDRO) at the University of Cambridge, on 28-29 January, 2010.

Abstract

Quality of life and human well-being are highly contested notions, and there is no consensus on the definition of well-being. While the capability approach has been lauded as an important new way of looking at the issue, researchers have shown there are many challenges related to operationalizing this novel approach. We demonstrate how we used a new information and technology-oriented approach called eResearch, along with the models and organizational setups used in large-scale survey projects such as PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment) and PIAAC (Programme for the International Assessment of Adult Competencies) to overcome many of the obstacles to measuring capabilities and well-being. As such this paper can make a major methodological contribution to the field. Based on the same model as PISA and PIAAC and employing their organizational parameters, we suggest that a large scale collective enterprise should rally all the mature multinational and national infrastructures settled by organizations like the UN, the OECD, national institutions, NGOs, and so on, to form a consortium under the supervision of the United Nations Development Programme and the OECD, and set up a project for human development assessment. This project could be named PIHDA, the Programme for the International Human Development Assessment.
