An LSE symposium on the 29th January

The London School of Economics held a symposium on Priorities for Transforming Transfer Programmes on Wednesday 29 January 2020

Recent years have seen a growing debate around different approaches to address human needs: programmes differ in a variety of ways – in terms of type and coverage of provision, level of generosity and conditionality arrangements – which in turn reflect different priorities and policy goals. While the idea of a Universal Basic Income has seen increasing interest among policy makers and academics, this symposium brings together different disciplinary perspectives to explore normative justifications of different approaches to address human needs, as well as practical solutions, their feasibility and relevance to specific contexts and issues emerging in different countries around the world.
