Unlocking human rights with a Basic Income – a discussion with Guy Standing

  • Agape Centre 238 Lisburn Road Belfast, BT9 6GF Northern Ireland (map)

Globally we are witnessing the death throes of a broken economic model that fails to create decent work and wages, strips away the safety net of social security and hastens ecological disaster.

What about a future where human rights are central to the economy and everyone is guaranteed a basic income without conditions?

Basic income is not a pipe dream. In India, Canada, Finland, Kenya, Scotland and many other countries, Basic Income is an idea whose time has come. Can we make it happen here?

Right to Work: Right to Welfare, supported by the Participation and Practice of RIghts and the Agape Centre, invite you to a discussion with Guy Standing, the author of 'Basic Income and How We Can Make It Happen', Professional Research Associate at SOAS University London and a founding member and honorary co-president of the Basic Income Earth Network (BEIN), a non-governmental organisation that promotes a basic income for all.

Please email aylisha@pprproject.org if you have any access requirements.
