The paper investigates the normative role of human agency in the capability approach of Amartya Sen. It argues for the centrality of the relational dimension of agency freedom with reference (a) to the formation and the critical scrutiny of value judgments, which underlie the choice of functionings and capabilities both individually and collectively, (b) to the process aspect of the formation of personal identity in terms of relational autonomy. According to Sen's emphasis on the importance of the agency freedom for the well-being acquisition, agency poverty understood as relational poverty turns out to be a causal factor in capability deprivation.
