Capabilities and Special Needs: An Educational Foundation

Publikation: Bog/antologi/afhandling/rapportDoktordisputatsForskning

The author, Christian Christrup Kjeldsen, presents a comprehensive
capability-oriented study of high excellence. For this work he has recieved the doctor titel Dr.phil (Doktor der Philosophie) from Bielefeld University, Germany 2013 with the highest possible grade "ausgezeichnet". The doctoral thesis deals with a new Danish innovative policy (Act. no. 564 of 2007), a social work and educational intervention for mentally challenged Young people and other young people with special needs, the so-called individually arranged youth education (STU). The investigated area has lately been taken into international consideration in relation to the implementation of the UN convention on the rights of persons with disabilities. As for the theoretical basis, the research makes
use of the sociological open-ended and relational concepts of Pierre Bourdieu and the normative yardstick of the Capability Approach. An approach that has been formulated by Amartya Sen and Martha Nussbaum, it introduces, discusses and finally analyses data with an emphasis on Martha Nussbaum’s central human functionings of practical reason and bodily health with a particular focus on the
freedom to choose.
