Résumé : Current initiatives of social innovation bring forward new ways of doing and organizing, but transformative knowings as well. Their efforts towards the realization of those are important sites for the investigation of contemporary tensions of expertise. The promotion of transformative knowings typically involves a large bandwidth of claims to expertise. The attendant contestation is unfolded through the exemplar case of the Basic Income, in which the historically evolved forms of academic advocacy are increasingly accompanied by a new wave of activism. The crowd-funding initiatives, internet activists, citizen labs and petitions for referenda seek to realize the BI through different claims to expertise. Observing both the competition between the diverse claims to expertise and the overall co-production process through which the Basic Income is realized, this contribution concludes with reflections on the politics of expertise involved with transformative social innovation.
