520    This book provides a unique laboratory of 'capabilities in
       practice' in the Asia-Pacific region. It explores the 
       application of the capability approach in development 
       practice and public policy from a multidisciplinary 
       perspective by bringing together scholars and 
       practitioners from a wide range of disciplinary 
       backgrounds, including development studies, health policy,
       political science, political theory, political economy, 
       architecture, indigenous studies, urban planning and 
       communication technologies. The first part of the book 
       provides a foundational theoretical framework to introduce
       the empirical applications of the capability theory in 
       different areas of development practice and public policy 
       in the Asia-Pacific region. This part discusses thorny 
       issues in capability theory and raises the potential for 
       capability theory to lead to new ways of thinking about 
       old problems. The second part discusses the application of
       the capability approach to intransigent problems of 
       marginalisation and the articulation of public policy in 
       New Zealand and Australia. In particular, this part 
       focuses on the potential implications that a capability-
       based approach can have on the well-being of indigenous 
       peoples in both countries, as well as children, older 
       renters, and urban dwellers in Australia. The third part 
       elucidates how capability theory is being applied by 
       researchers in the Asia-Pacific region to local issues in 
       developing countries such as Samoa, Vanuatu, Papua New 
       Guinea and Sri Lanka. In doing so, it provides original 
       content to the world market in capability theory by 
       focussing on this often-neglected area of scholarship. As 
       a whole, this volume offers a unique and innovative 
       scrutiny of a multifaceted capability-based analysis of 
       development practice and public policy. The scope and 
       breadth of this volume advance the application of the 
520 8  approach and offer an indispensable resource to scholars, 
       researchers, policy makers and policy practitioners 
       interested in the theoretical insights and practical 
       implications of the capability approach
