Tuesday, May 17, 2016, Professor Guy Standing will deliver the RSA Scotland’s prestigious Angus Millar Lecture.

In the lecture, “Professor Standing will explore the concept of Basic Income, particularly in relation to Scotland, which has gone from being a fringe political concept to one being discussed and piloted around the world.”

Guy Standing is a Professor of Development Studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London, and co-founder and honorary co-president of the Basic Income Earth Network.

The RSA, a British think tank, has been active in promoting the idea of a basic income, and developed a detailed model for a basic income last December.

See the event details here for more information, or to register for the free public event.
