The Supportive State

Transfer programmes are the first area addressed within a broader research agenda looking at approaches to redistribution. Programmes differ in a variety of ways – in terms of type and coverage of provision, level of generosity and conditionality arrangements – which in turn reflect different priorities and policy goals. Following from the Beveridge 2.0 Festival in 2018, one of the approaches considered is the idea of a Universal Basic Income – which has seen increasing interest amongst policy makers and elicited substantial academic debate. The symposium explores a variety of questions regarding normative justifications, historical developments, feasibility concerns and solutions, with an attention to the specific contexts and the issues emerging in different countries around the world.
