Building on Mutual Aid

Dr Simon Duffy, Director of the Centre for Welfare Reform and co-founder of Citizen Network discusses citizenship and the lessons we can draw from the community response to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

He argues that we are close to being able to realise a major transformation in our community lives and in our understanding of democracy. Combining basic income and Neighbourhood Democracy could help us reorganise society and shift power to citizens and communities.
