    Abstract

    Understanding wellbeing through subjective scales leads to underestimations of the significance of inequalities due to their simplistic nature. Here, Lee Knifton, Reader and Co-Director of the Centre for Health Policy at the University of Strathclyde, argues for a broader and more progressive notion of ‘collective wellbeing’ drawing upon learning from human rights, citizenship and capabilities approaches.
