New bepress Journal : Basic Income Studies Inaugral Issue
The Berkeley Electronic Press, together with editors Rafael Pinilla-Pallejà (Ministry of Public Affairs, Spain), Jurgen De Wispelaere (Trinity College Dublin), and Karl Widerquist (University of Oxford), is very pleased to announce the launch of Basic Income Studies, the first peer-reviewed journal devoted to basic income and related issues of poverty relief and universal welfare. An exciting new venture supported by major international networks of scholars, policy makers, and activists, Basic Income Studies is the only forum for scholarly research on this leading edge movement in contemporary social policy. Articles discuss the design and implementation of basic income schemes, and address the theory and practice of universal welfare in clear, non-technical language that engages the wider policy community.
Basic Income Studies benefits from an editorial board at the forefront of research in poverty and employment, welfare reform, political theory, political economy, and public policy. Editors come from leading universities and government agencies worldwide, including the University of Amsterdam, University of Oxford, Columbia University, the University of Buenos Aires, UCLA, the London School of Economics, the Catholic University of Louvain, Harvard University, and Trinity College Dublin.
Basic Income Studies launches its inaugural issue with a retrospective on "A Capitalist Road to Communism," the article that put basic income firmly on the map in academic and policy circles when it was first published in 1986. The original article is reprinted with a set of six new comments and a specially written reply by the authors, Robert van der Veen and Philippe Van Parijs.
