Has Covid made the case for a new approach to minimum income protection?

0

Amidst discussions on the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy and the most vulnerable citizens, the debate around minimum income schemes (MIS), universal basic income (UBI) and the adequate measures to prevent social exclusion has gained renewed attention at national and EU levels. The webinar will take stock of ongoing debate and address the following questions: is the pandemic calling for a new European-wide approach to  minimum income protection? Has Covid made the case for UBI? What can we learn from recent policy developments around MIS and UBI experiments in EU member states?

The event will mark the end of a three-day Summer School –  ‘Reducing risk of poverty in the EU: Data and policies’ – organised by CEPS in the framework of the Horizon 2020 project InGRID-2 and with financial support from the European Commission.
