General description

In this course students learn to critically examine the arguments in favour and against basic income and to place the basic income model within the broader context of challenges to and reform of the modern welfare state. Students will also learn to differentiate different basic income models, and to understand the practical and political challenges that emerge when moving from a social idea to a social policy. Throughout this course students will gain understanding of the practical problems of social policy design and implementation.


Course consists of a series of lectures by different lecturers. Students will watch one lecture per week, read one text in advance per every lecture and participate weekly to the discussion in moodle. Students will also write an essay (3-5 pages).
