Introduction

The amount of work that the Trust (UIT) is involved in daily greatly exceeds what can possibly be described in a website such as this. We can only hope to offer a very small smattering of its highlights and hope that it relates to the interest areas of the passing reader.

 

Upcoming and Current Events

The Trust is always working on research, data collection, the development of more and better educational resources on universal income systems, economic rights/human rights, and sustainability issues. It is always on call to provide workshops, advice, support, and seminars for interested people. It is constantly engaged in networking and educating in formal and non-formal situations in an effort to work as broadly and effectively throughout the diversity of the population of Aotearoa NZ as possible. It also works internationally in order to keep abreast of the developments and to be able to work in concert with the unfolding of those developments that are occurring across the globe in the areas uniting the issues of sustainability with those of economic/human rights and the upgrading/strengthening of the democratic structures that empower the people.

 

The Ongoing Work

1998-? until everyone in Aotearoa NZ and everyone on our planet is receiving their rightful entitlement of a universal income for their shared roles as the democratic sovereigns over their fully realised democratic societies.

 

 

1998 - Present

Ten year overview highlighting key activities of the the Universal Income Trust and its processes

A Ten year overview of key ongoing activities and processes of the Universal Income Trusts is downloadable here in PDF format. This document highlights the diversity, spread, and extent or our ongoing activities across Aotearoa and abroad. Though it is only a summary document it is still quite extensive; the activities are far too numerous and cumbersome to adequately list here on the website. The cited distribution venues across the country for both formal and non-formal education are ongoing as well. We will attempt to post highlighted updates of these activities here in pdf's as time permits.

Presentation Title: The World of Universal Income: an historic participatory experience updating and traversing the unified issues of economic rights, human growth and development, sustainability, and the future of Aotearoa NZ across the diversity of cultures of our global community.

Universal Income Systems are those economic systems that are compliant with International Human and Economic Rights laws. They ensure that everyone in society will unconditionally have sufficient resources to care for themselves and their families such that they can effectively engage in the decision making and management issues that impinge on their stakeholder rights and/or interests to develop and maintain the society in which they most would like to live.

Take part in the discussions and issues. An enriching experience, you will take back far more than you can bring: informative challenging, positive, and surprising.

Free health, free education through tertiary levels, are available right now for less taxes than we pay for the discriminatory user-pay type systems that have been imposed on society without the requisite consultation, debate and research to justify them. The most successful and sustainable economic systems today with the highest incomes per person, the most free-time for people, the best education achievements, the most democratic, the least violent, and having the least poverty are those that are closest to a full universal income system grounded in economic rights laws. Learn how they work: past through to the present.

NZ has passed the requisite economic rights laws comprising UI Systems. They have been put into force, legislated into the appropriate statutes. So why don’t we have them now in practice? What do we need to know? Come join in and find out!

Paper by UIT accepted for Forum Barcelona 2004: The Universal Forum of Cultures

September 2004, a paper from UIT entitled: Education and the democratic sovereignty of the people: a human rights approach towards introducing and entrenching the full integration and implementation of a universal income beyond the duration of elected governments has been accepted as part of the Forum Barcelona 2004 Dialogue; Human Rights, Emerging Needs and New Commitments which will host within that framework the 10th Congress of the Basic Income European Network's  The Right to a Basic Income: Egalitarian Democracy 2004 at the INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION CENTRE Barcelona, 18-21 September 2004. 

"The purpose of this Dialogue is to analyse the current status and force of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in the 21st century. The aim will be to work towards the creation and adoption of a new Universal Declaration of Emerging Human Rights by civil society, with the idea of encouraging the values of freedom, equality, pluralism, solidarity, and the institutional principles of democracy. This should lead to the reinforcement of the statute of citizenship, the establishment of the social agenda of the New Millennium and, in addition, the review of the current international system of guarantees of basic rights."

Forum Barcelona 2004: The Universal Forum of Cultures, is a five month project extending from May 9 to September 26, 2004 and is being co-organized by the Barcelona City Council, the Catalan autonomous Government and the Spanish Government, with the unanimous support of UNESCO as the major partner. Three main themes define the forum; they are Cultural Diversity, Sustainability, and Conditions for Peace.

The paper will be included on the CD of the Congress. Stay tuned for more details.

E/C.12/1/Add.88. 

 “36. The Committee encourages the State party to provide human rights education in schools at all levels and to raise awareness about human rights, in particular economic, social and cultural rights, among State officials and the judiciary.”

New brochures are available in Chinese, Japanese and Korean. There is a new Funding brochure. The old funding brochure has been updated and is still available under a different name called "More on Funding". See Resource page.

Highlights of UIT's Past Events and Achievements

bulletIn December 1998, to mark the 50th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the Trust presented Human Rights 2000: A Festival For Change - a weekend of entertainment with workshops and information tables, focusing on economic rights and the full implementation of the IBHR in Aotearoa NZ. The festival drew over 200 performers on 5 stages and was supported by a diverse array of community groups and businesses. The Kaumatua Richard Wallace and the Maori Culture Group from the Whakatu Marae provided a tangata whenua opening ceremony. Speakers at the festival included Areta Koopu, Human Rights Commissioner and member of the Waitangi Tribunal; Ross Brereton, South Island Human Rights Commissioner; Bob Newson, Kaiwhakarite for the Human Rights Commission - Maori Advisor; Colin Aikman, one of the original signatories and drafters of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights; and Paul Hunt, NZ elected official then sitting on the United Nations' Committee for the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, and UIT Chairperson Patrick Danahey.
bulletIn mid-1999, following from this festival, three of the event organisers and members of UIT were independently sponsored for the project Human Rights 2000: World Networking Tour. They travelled to 18 different countries (in Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, the Aegean, Scandinavia, Australia, USA and Canada) networking, presenting workshops, holding informal meetings, and gathering information/resources. The primary objective was to introduce the underlying principles of a UI, which have been derived from the recent developments in international human rights laws combined with the concept of democratic sovereignty, with the intention of helping to link with, unify and strengthen the global social/economic justice, sustainability, and basic income movements. Amongst the many people they met and networked with were :-

John Craig (Centre for Policy Development in Queensland's Department of the Premier),

John Tomlinson PhD (Basic Income Guarantee Australia),

Lobsang Nyandak (Executive Director of Tibetan Centre for Human Rights and Democracy),

Thupten Lungrig (Vice-chairman of Tibetan Parliament-in-Exile headed by the Dalai Lama),

Key members of Basic Income European Network (BIEN) including the then chairperson, Philippe van Parijs Ph.D.,

Members of the Forum for Stable Currencies held in the House of Lords in London,

Council of Religious in Ireland (CORI) representatives (authors of a basic income proposal recently considered in an Irish government Green Paper),

Representatives of Ontario Campaign Against Poverty,

Robert Schutz Ph.D. (US economist, author of The $30,000 Solution: A Guaranteed Annual Income for Every American ),

Marie-Louise Duboin,Ph.D. (current leading member of the French universal income movement and daughter of one of the original founders of the basic income movement in Europe),

MP's and government officials from around the world.

They also spent much time with grass roots organisations and the general public.

bulletFollowing on from the last UBINZ (Universal Basic Income NZ) conference, UIT convened a follow-up working group meeting in Wellington in 2000, Universal Income: Gathering 2000, at which various people involved in UBI (Universal Basic Income), UIT, UUI (Unconditional Universal Income), CI(Citizens Income ) and the NZ Democratic Party, which has a form of Basic Income in its manifesto, discussed education and promotional strategies as well as reinforcing common ground policies.
bulletUIT submitted to New Zealand's Tax Review 2001 and was interviewed on Mainland TV on this issue.
bulletAlso, in April 2001, it submitted to New Zealand's Second Periodic Report under the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.
bulletIn 2002 the Trust prepared information for the Maori Anglican Church. The South Island Maori Anglican Church Hui Amorangi decided to bring the concept of Universal Income Systems to the national Runanganui on the North Island to consider a formal investigation of its merits. At their national conference in 2001, Te Runanganui o Te Pihopatanga o Aotearoa (the Maori Anglican synod) resolved the following: 1) That Te Pihopatanga investigate Universal Income Systems to determine whether such a system should be sought as a policy for this nation.2) And that Te Runanga Whaiti appoints a working party on this matter.
