Guy Standing, Professor of Development Studies at SOAS, University of London presented a talk on ‘Citizen’s Income: A minor policy change that would transform our society’ at the People’s Parliament earlier this week.
The People’s Parliament is a discussion series held in Parliament, hosted by John McDonnell MP with the aim of livening up, and providing political depth, to the debate in the run up to the next election.
Professor Standing's latest book A Precariat Charter: From Denizens to Citizens, published by Bloomsbury, will be available from 10 April. He is also due to receive an honorary doctorate from the University of Plovdiv in Bulgaria, following the publication of his previous book The Precariat: The New Dangerous Class in the country.
