Will UBI (Really) Change the World? Global Evidence on Basic Income
Symposium (online and onsite)
with Marcia Gibson (University of Glasgow, Social & Public Health Sciences), Sarath Davala (India Network of Basic Income, BIEN), Julio Linares (BIEN, Circles), Miriam Laker (GiveDirectly), Teodoro Criscione (Central European University), Diana Bashur (Uni Vienna and BIEN), Barbara Prainsack (Uni Vienna) and Lukas Schlögl (ÖFSE)
Targeted cash transfers have been hotly discussed in policy circles since at least the early 2000s when programs such as Brazil’s Bolsa Família made history. More recently, the debate has shifted towards Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) and how such alternative schemes could provide for an effective and dignified social and development policy.
Jointly organized by the Center for Contemporary Solidarity Studies (CeSCoS) of the University of Vienna and the Austrian Foundation for Development Research (OeFSE), this small symposium brings together a group of experts to discuss the aspirations and realities of UBI interventions in the Global South and beyond.
The event takes place both on site in Vienna and online. It is free and open to all.
