International debates about a universal basic income herald a possible end to social inequality through a universal economic safety net for individuals from the vagrancies and adversity of the labour market. In Australia, studies about the how social security law entraps women in violent relationships show the need for a rethink of our heavily targeted social security apparatus. At its essence, social security law categorises the entitled from the un-entitled; the coupled from the single; the deserving from the undeserving. This panel explores new research and discussions about the right to social security and the possibility of a future in which all are entitled to social security support as a basic human right and in which social inequality is in the past.
