ABSTRACT

This paper discusses the implication of the participation income as a strategy for building an alternative social security system, on the basis of the concept of social citizenship. According to T. H. Marshall, social rights which is an element of social citizenship involve the right to receive social services needed ‘to live the life of a civilized being according to the standards prevailing in the society’ as well as ‘the right to a modicum of economic welfare’, but in a society the rights could be enjoyed only if citizens fulfil their responsibilities or duties to support others’ freedom and happiness. The participation income is aimed at both guaranteeing an income and providing (non-market) social services needed in the society through citizens’ participation, so it could be an effective policy that enables citizens to enjoy real social rights and to fulfill social responsibilities. Furthermore, the participation income could contribute to enhancing cooperative governance for the creation of social values among the government, the community and the public.
