For this session, we will be in discussion with Vibhor Mathur. Vibhor is a Doctoral Researcher at the University of Bath and is a UK and Research Associate at University of Cardiff, UK.

Vibhor studies the transformative potential of basic income through pilots and advocacy in South Asia and Europe. His doctoral research on the the WorkFREE project in Hyderabad, India, focuses on the role basic income can play in the fight for dignity, freedom and decent work.

As a part of the wider India Network for Basic Income, he has been closely involved in advocacy and outreach programs with governments and civil society across South Asia. He also works in the team at Cardiff University, evaluating the Welsh Government's Basic Income Pilot for Care Leavers.

As a member of Bath University UBI Beacon, Vibhor will help us understand the impact of basic income programs on people's lives, perceptions and relationships both in India and the UK, and how this knowledge can be used to advocate for basic income.
