Title: Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) - Exploring a pathway towards emancipatory welfare conditions in the EU
Current status: Insufficient support
Commission registration number: ECI(2013)000001
Date of registration: 14/01/2013
Registration language: EN / Other languages available: BG CS DA DE EL EN ES ET FI FR HU IT NL PT RO SK SL SV
Subject-matter: Asking the Commission, to encourage cooperation between the Member States (according to Art 156 TFEU) aiming to explore the Unconditional Basic Income (UBI) as a tool to improve their respective social security systems.
Main objectives: In the long run the objective is to offer to each person in the EU the unconditional right as an individual, to having his/her material needs met to ensure a life of dignity as stated by the EU treaties, and to empower participation in society supported by the introduction of the UBI. In the short term, initiatives such as “pilot‐studies“ (Art 156 TFEU) and examination of different models of UBI (EP resolution 2010/2039(INI) §44) should be promoted by the EU.
Provisions of the Treaties considered relevant by the organisers: TEU Art. 2+3; TFEU Art. 5+156, Charter of Fundamental Rights Art. 1+2, 5+6, 15, 21, 34
