From Basic Income Conference - Day 2 - Christiansborg - 23 sept 2016.
In the Nordic welfare model, universal access to social security has been the core of social welfare. This principle has, however, been abandoned. Today, the criterion of social rights is replaced with the criterion of duties with introduction of the principles of investment, capability or competition.
At the same time, a growing diversity in lifestyle and social demands / needs has meant that the universal rights have lost their relevance and importance for large groups of citizens.
Both these dilemmas lead to inequality for citizens in their opportunities for inclusion in society and their possibilities for democratic participation. Basic income would be a significant step towards equality, emancipation and social, economic and political justice.
