The politics of poverty have come into sharp focus locally after a damning report published by the United Nations Special Rapporteur on Extreme Poverty and Human Rights, Professor Phillip Alston.

Globally we may be witnessing the death throes of a broken economic model that fails to create decent work and wages, strips away the safety net of social security and hastens ecological disaster.
 
What about a future where human rights are central to the economy and everyone is guaranteed a basic income without conditions? 
 
Basic Income is not a pipe dream. In India, Canada, Finland, Kenya, Scotland and many other countries, Basic Income is an idea whose time has come. Can we make it happen here?
 
Right to Work: Right to Welfare, supported by Participation and the Practice of Rights and the Agape Centre, invite you to a discussion with Guy Standing, an economic adviser to the British Labour Party's Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer, John Mc Donnell, author of
Basic Income and How We Can Make It Happen, council member of the Progressive Economy Forum and a founding member and honorary co-president of the Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN), a non-governmental organisation that promotes a basic income for all.
