An Open Forum on Feminist Definitions of Basic Income

April 25 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

co-organised by FRIBIS UBI and Gender team (FRIBIS-UBIG) and by BIEN working group for Clarification of BI definition (BIEN-CBID)
Facilitators: Chloe Halpenny, Annie Miller, Toru Yamamori, and Almaz Zelleke

Researchers, activists, and community members interested in basic income are invited to this open forum to discuss feminist definitions of basic income.


Is a penny a month basic income?
Would basic income replace all existing income transfer system?
What might happen to social services if basic income were to be introduced?
Why are some proposals to distribute money to the head of household called basic income, while many others define basic income as individual-based?
Currently there are many proposals made under the name of basic income. The current discourse of basic income has diverse origins. Some are from ivory towers, some are from grassroots social movements such as the Women’s Liberation movement. The difference on the definitions of basic incomes reflects (at least partially) these diverse origins.
It has been a while since this difference of the definitions has attracted debate. Wish a few exceptions , voices from feminist perspectives have been underrepresented in this debate. Here we would like to attempt to redress this situation. In this workshop we do not aim to reach a particular consensus or direction. It is a place where diverse voices would be raised and heard. All those interested in the discussion are welcome to participate.
