As Secretary of the Jury of the Princess of Asturias Foundation Award, I had the tremendous honor of speaking with economist and philosopher Amartya Sen, Nobel Prize in Economics and 2021 Award Winner of the Princess of Asturias in Social Sciences.
Human development and human capabilities are at the heart of his work. In our conversation, Prof. Sen underscored the importance of learning and communicating for advancing society and effecting positive social change.
