What is Unconditional Basic Income?

As a legal right, UBI is a regular income paid by a political community to all its members from cradle to grave.
It is Universal, Individual, Unconditional, and High enough to live with dignity.

individueelrechtUniversal: Every person, irrespective of age, descent, place of residence, profession etc. will be entitled to receive this allocation.


geentoetsIndividual: Everyone has the right to UBI on an individual basis as this is the only way to ensure privacy and to prevent control over other individuals. UBI will be independent of marital status, cohabitation or household configuration, or of the income or property of other household or family members.

geendwangUnconditional: As a human right UBI shall not depend on any preconditions, whether an obligation to take paid employment, to be involved in community service, or to behave according to traditional gender roles. Nor will it be subject to income, savings or property limits.


hooggenoegHigh enough: The amount shall provide for a decent standard of living, which meets society’s social and cultural standards in the country concerned. It will prevent material poverty and provide the opportunity to participate in society and to live in dignity.


We emphasize that UBI shall not replace the compensatory welfare state but rather complete and transform it into an emancipatory welfare system.
