The livestreamed debate on Monday, 20 July, will feature author and commentator Fatima Bhutto, former UK Foreign Secretary and House of Commons Leader Lord William Hague, and Brazilian congresswoman and activist Tabata Amaral. The debate will include individual arguments, a solutions-focused bridge-building dialogue, and participation from Qatar and around the world.
The program’s debaters will discuss whether welfare policies such as UBI should become permanent as the world prepares for the post-coronavirus era. The debate comes as coronavirus is leaving a massive economic downturn in its wake, with its consequences more dire than any seen in generations.
