HYY's Representative Council meeting on 23.4.2014 adopted a new policy paper on student subsistence. The policy paper guides the student union’s advocacy work on the student financial aid and other forms of support. With the adoption of the policy paper the student union takes a clear stance for reforming the Finnish social security system towards a gratuitous basic income. The paper also defines the student union’s positions on internships and housing support, for example.
The whole policy paper can be found here.
