A new PhD dissertation by Jurgen De Wispelaere explores the political and administrative feasibility of basic income, providing insight on how we can translate basic income from a worthy, general idea to something that is tangible and ready to implement.

“A widespread tendency to think about basic income as a general idea rather than a set of specific policy proposals obscures the

This internal division has a major impact on the political stability of a broad enacting basic income coalition.” Noting that “internal tensions inherent in basic income design become salient once we consider basic income implementation”.
