Individual Paper: Basic income and working time reduction: what is their environmental impact?
This paper looks at two policies targeting employment, basic income and working time reduction, and their environmental impact. Its focus is on social and environmental aspects of the two policies with the aim of determining whether the policies might have a positive environmental impact if implemented on a large scale, at a national level, in the Global North and Global South. Each of the two policies is illustrated by case studies looking at several trials/experiments in both Global North and Global South. This highlights the conditions of the two policies, their implementation, and what could be learned from their outcomes.
