From Basic Income Conference - Day 2 - Christiansborg - 23 sept 2016. In the Nordic welfare states, universal solutions to the citizens’ needs have been a characteristic, parallel with a strong work orientation. The universalistic feature of the social security system is closely related to an unconditional ‘basic income’ paid to all. However, it is the work orientation that has been the answer to the challenges the Nordic welfare state has faced in recent years (unemployment, precarious work, marginalization, immigration), not the universal basic income. This policy path is a threat to the Nordic welfare model, and contrasts with some of the key motives for a universal social policy – economic efficiency and human dignity.
