Sao Paulo, Brazil
30 June to 2 July 2010
For the very first time in its history, the international basic income network will hold a meeting in Latin America, more specifically in Brazil. Every other year researchers, scholars, policy makers and politicians from different parts of the world get together to discuss alternatives that could lead to the promotion and implementation of an elementary principle of social justice: the guarantee of a monetary income, of equal value, unconditional and free of quid pro quo, to all citizens that are members of a community. This debate arose in Europe over 20 years ago and today it integrates the agenda of discussions on socioeconomic rights in the developing countries as well. Ideas, experiences and new designs for public policies will be addressed by specialists and several guests for three days.
The 13th Congress of the Basic Income Earth Network will take place from June 3oth to July 2nd, at the Faculty of Economics and Administration of the University of São Paulo. The conference main theme deals with basic income as an instrument for justice and peace. The Preliminary Programme is already available.
