Shame, Humiliation and Social Isolation: Missing Dimensions of Poverty and Suffering Analysis

China Mills, Diego Zavaleta, and Kim Samuel of the Oxford Poverty & Human Development Initiative (OPHI) have released a working paper Shame, Humiliation and Social Isolation: Missing Dimensions of Poverty and Suffering Analysis in which they argue that:

[T]he use of particular indicators of shame, humiliation, and social isolation can better recognize distributions of suffering. It can also help identify individuals and sub-groups within those living in multidimensional poverty – or of the general population at large – that are affected by concrete and particularly hurtful situations. Consequently, they can help to identify levels of suffering which are higher within a specific population.
