    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;In this paper, I define a theory of &amp;#39;informational wellbeing&amp;#39; based on the&amp;nbsp;capabilities approach to wellbeing. This theory defines the relationship between &amp;#39;informational capabilities,&amp;#39; such as the ability to control access to one&amp;#39;s personal information,&amp;nbsp;and overall wellbeing. This theory&amp;nbsp;is flexible, measurable, and non-technical. It is intended to help policymakers and social scientists to assess the impact of technology policies in wellbeing terms.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
