The unconditional basic income (UBI) has attracted renewed attention in academia, as well as in public discussions in recent years, and much has been written on the possible consequences of a UBI. However, this is the first book focusing on the UBI in Europe that offers empirical research findings. It includes a survey on preferences for a UBI in the EU; an assessment of the political feasibility of a UBI in the EU; field studies in the Netherlands and Scotland; and the findings of laboratory experiments. Presenting contributions from Dutch and international researchers, this book provides scientific answers to the question of whether a UBI is desirable and feasible in Europe.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book is worth the read and its contents and ideas are fitting well with the current social situation generated by the COVID-19 pandemic. ... It is helpful for any student or academic interested in UBI, as well as political decision-makers who want to get an informed perspective on the potential that basic income holds." (Mircea Gherghina, British Journal of Industrial Relations, Vol. 58 (4), 2020)

"Even though the book is focused on European countries, the insights provided through empirical research in the chapters make it a must-read for students, proponents or opponents of UBI, as well as policy makers who are seeking theoretical or practical evidence of the impacts of UBI. ... this book provides significant insights into the literature and state of the art in the field of UBI." (Kruti R. Lehenbauer, Journal of Behavioral and Experimental Economics, Vol. 86, 2020)
