    This paper proposes a measure for deprivation in social participation, an important but so far neglected dimension of human well-being. Operationalisation and empirical implementation of the measure are conceptually guided by the capability approach. Essentially, the paper argues that deprivation in social participation can be convincingly established by drawing on extensive non-participation in customary social activities. In doing so, the present paper synthesizes philosophical considerations, axiomatic research on poverty and deprivation, and previous empirical research on social exclusion and subjective well-being. An application using high-quality German survey data supports the measure’s validity. Specifically, the results suggest, as theoretically expected, that the proposed measure is systematically different from related concepts like material deprivation and income poverty. Moreover, regression techniques reveal deprivation in social participation to reduce life satisfaction substantially, quantitatively similar to unemployment. Finally, the validity of the measure and the question of preference vs. deprivation are discussed.

    Keywords: social participation, capability approach, deprivation, life satisfaction, multidimensional poverty, SOEP

    ISQOLS 2021 CONFERENCE

    “Quality-of-life and Adaptation in a Virulent World”

    VIRTUAL EVENT

    23-27 AUGUST 2021



    Given the uncertainty of the current global pandemic, travel restrictions, and planning challenges the 2021 ISQOLS Annual Conference will be held virtually August 23 through the 27th, 2021 (specific times to be announced). The ISQOLS 2021 Conference will offer a forum for discussion of the research findings concerning quality of life, well-being, and happiness, similar to all of our past, in-person conferences.

    The theme of the Conference is “quality-of-life and adaptation in a virulent world”. The world has changed dramatically in the past year. How do we now examine quality-of-life, wellbeing, and happiness? What are the challenges and opportunities for well-being research and policy in the face of a global pandemic? What important work is being carried out to encourage personal, communal, environmental, and social resiliency in a Covid-19 world? We invite researchers, practitioners, students, professionals, faculty, retirees, experts and novices to participate and engage in this virtual event.

    Paper abstract submissions will open December 1, 2020.
