Sosyal Yardımların Yaşam Kalitesine Etkisi: Birleşik Krallık Örneği

This article focuses on the assesment of living standards to evaluate whether or not the provision of welfare benefits makes a difference to the lives of recipients. Data were collected in the province of Glasgow, in the United Kingdom, between 2015 March and 2016 February, as a part of a project named “The Analysis Of Public Welfare Benefits Efficiency”. This article is based on a theoretical approach derived from Amartya Sen’s concept of ‘functionings’ and ‘capabilities’ and Martha Nusbaum’s ‘central human functional capabilities list’ which comprises -life, bodily health, senses-imagination and thought, emotion, practical reason, affiliation, other species, play, material and political control over one’s environment, -which was used to asses wellbeing. This article pays particular attention to the question how far the provision of welfare benefits enables benefit recipients to achieve their capabilities with particular reference to the capabilities of bodily health, senses-imagination and thought, emotions, affiliation, play, and control over one’s environment.
