Basic Income Asia Pacific’s (BIAP) mission is to bring the discussion of Universal Basic Income to the entire region. Our current focus is on implementing a pilot program in Taiwan through BIAP’s affiliate UBI Taiwan. In pursuit of this mission, BIAP has brought together scholars from all over the globe to help us elevate the level of research and discussion of Universal Basic Income in Asia. In March 2017, BIAP organized the first ever Asia Pacific focused basic income conference. Affiliation: In the coming years, we will expand our affiliates beyond Taiwan into other Asia Pacific countries. If your organization is located in the Asia Pacific and would like to become an affiliate of BIAP please contact us. When available, BIAP will provide affiliates with advice and resources to help pursue pilot programs or other strategies in their own countries.
This fellowship will give students and students who have already graduated direct experience establishing an international NGO, working with prominent experts and advocates from all over the world. UBI Taiwan is offering a six to eight week fellowship for competitive undergraduate and graduate students to lay the groundwork for a basic income pilot program in Taiwan, as well as promote discussion of Universal Basic Income across the island. Applicants will have the ability to extend their fellowship past the summer. For example, research interns can transfer into permanent positions, such as Assistant Research Director. ▶︎Length: July to August (can be extended) ▶︎Sign up：tinyurl.com/BIAPsign ▶︎Facebook：facebook.com/TaiwanUBI ▶︎Questions：firstname.lastname@example.org
