[Translate to Englisch:] Flyer der Veranstaltung

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.
