Notas biográficas

Guy Standing is Professor of Economic Security at the University of Bath and a founder member and co-president of the Basic Income Earth Network (BIEN), a non-governmental organisation that promotes a citizenship income for all.  Professor Standing has just completed a book on the global precariat, an emerging class characterised by insecurity and lack of any occupational identity (The Precariat: The New Dangerous Class, Bloomsbury Academic, 2011). The book takes up one of the themes in his more comprehensive analysis of the global transformation of work and labour (Work After Globalization: Building Occupational Citizenship, Edward Elgar, 2009).Recurrent themes of his research, often drawing on extensive household and workplace surveys, have been the insecurities faced by workers in the wake of reforms of labour law, labour regulation and social protection, and the rationale for moving towards unconditional income transfers.
