dc.description.abstractThis thesis develops a theoretical framework based on the capability approach by Amartya Sen to conduct a literature review on the effectiveness of different levels (individual, community and national) of development interventions in Tanzania. By adopting this holistic approach, the thesis aims to answer the question of which levels of development interventions are most effective for improving individuals’ quality of life according to the capability approach. The analysis shows that development interventions on the individual level have most evidence of being effective according to Sen’s approach, but the lack of in-depth data on both the community and national level makes it difficult to draw any definitive conclusions. Because of the importance of context when reviewing development interventions and the lack of in-depth studies available within the development field, this thesis argues that a holistic approach should be adopted more often in research within the development field.en_US
