Speech on Basic Income at the European Parliament

I was invited to speak at Post-Growth conference which took place at the European Parliament on 18-19 September 2018. In my 20mn presentation, I tried to sketch out the main arguments for why the EU needs a form of transnational solidarity mechanism such as a universal basic income, and how such a UBI might look like.

Drawing upon the concept of the “Eurodividend” as envisioned by Philippe Van Parijs, I introduce different strategies to finance a EU-wide basic income and way to advance such political agenda. You can watch the speech below:
