Event description
Join an expert panel to explore the opportunities and challenges in implementing a citizen's basic income in Scotland

About this Event

With predictions of social and economic upheaval brought about by technological and environmental changes, could a citizen's income reduce poverty and increase people's control over their lives? How attractive - and affordable - is it as a policy?

Using new research from Edinburgh and Heriott-Watt Universities, funded by the Scottish Universities Insight Institute , this seminar will bring together perspectives from all sides of the debate to consider whether citizen's income is a realistic solution for the future.
