Refused request for registration
Title: Unconditional Basic Income
Date of refusal: 06/09/2012
Language of the request: English

Subject-matter:
Gain support for the introduction of a universal, individual, unconditional basic income to ensure a life in dignity and participation in society within all member states of the EU.

Main objectives:
The European Commission is requested by the signatories to use all its existing means and possibilities to speed up the introduction of an Unconditional Basic Income. It needs a legal rights act in order to achieve the aims of the EU, to combat social exclusion and discrimination, and to promote social justice and social protection, offering each person unconditionally secured material existence, together with full participation in society.

Reason for refusal:
The proposed citizens' initiative falls manifestly outside the framework of the Commission's powers to submit a proposal for a legal act of the Union for the purpose of implementing the Treaties.
