Basic Income in Switzerland: What's Next?

Reflections, Lessons Learned and Perspectives

On June 5, 2016 all Swiss citizens were asked if they would like to amend their federal constitution with a Universal Basic Income (UBI). The proposal was declined, but the campaign not only prepared us for future discussions on social welfare in Switzerland, it also gave us key insights for how we can talk about the future of work and income in general. This text is focused not only on the Swiss voting process and result, but includes representative polling data from voters. It is an attempt to explain the factors that led to the result and where this story might continue — for it was only the beginning of a debate still to be had.
