Universal Basic Income

Universal Basic Income is an automatic income for every U.K. citizen. It would provide a minimum amount for every citizen, regardless of means. It aims to provide stability and security for all; reduce the need for means-tested benefits, and mitigate income shocks when a change of circumstance result in a crisis situation.

This paper explores what a UBI is, what it could achieve, and how the concept could be explored for a pilot in Northern Ireland.

Basic Income NI and UBI Lab NI have produced work on UBI proposals and pilots. For more information, please see links:
