Four concerns on the basic income (from a human rights perspective)

6 July 2018

In this entry I want to mention four considerations that suggest that human rights lawyers should be cautious in embracing basic income as a replacement for human rights. These reflections should be seen as merely exploratory. The basic income in full has never been put in practice, and consequently, it is hard to know exactly what it will entail.
