Mahbub ul Haq, the father of human development, shaped development philosophy and practice in the four decades from the 1960s to 1990s. He shifted the focus of development discourse to people and their well-being, monitoring its progress through the Human Development Index. Haq initiated a global movement involving policymakers, scholars, and activists who adopted his innovative ideas for people-centric development where education, health, and political and economic empowerment together became the yardstick for measuring a country’s performance. This intellectual biography is a tribute to Haq’s pioneering work. Comprising essays by Haq’s intellectual partners and colleagues, the volume traces the evolution of his ideas, especially the links he established between economic growth, people’s well-being, and poverty alleviation. Each essay situates and discusses his contribution to the larger development debate and assesses the impact of his ideas on the contemporary global development agenda.
