BIEN - Basic Income Earth Network

The Basic Income Earth Network - BIEN - was founded in 1986 as the Basic Income European Network.

It expanded its scope from Europe to the Earth in 2004. It is an international network that serves as a link between individuals and groups committed to or interested in basic income, and fosters informed discussion of the topic throughout the world.

To that end it organises Congresses every two years, and publishes a free email NewsFlash every two months and it helps support the journal Basic Income Studies.

BIEN is supported by individual members from throughout the world.

BIEN is affiliated with seventeen national networks throughout the world.
