Basic Income and the Euro-Dividend as sociopolitical pillars of the EU and its member countries – Freiburg (DE) @ University of Freiburg
Oct 11 – Oct 12 all-day

BASIC INCOME AND THE EURO-DIVIDEND AS SOCIOPOLITICAL
PILLARS OF THE EU AND ITS MEMBER COUNTRIES

Interdisciplinary Conference at the University of Freiburg, Germany October 11-12, 2018

In Europe, the public debate about a universal basic income (UBI) is usually a national one. In
recent years a European version of a UBI has attracted more and more attention – primarily pushed
by the suggestion of Philippe Van Parijs titled a “Euro-Dividend”.

This conference aims to shed light at pros and cons of a EU wide UBI regulation and its relation to
national approaches from an interdisciplinary perspective. Both UBI approaches shall be analysed
and discussed with respect to justice, economic and migration effects, legal aspects, creation of
solidarity in the EU, and political viability. On the first day, the conference will address general
issues about UBI while the schedule of the second day contains EU-related concepts just like the
Euro-Dividend.

CALL FOR PAPERS

We invite papers from Philosophy, Sociology, Political Science, Law, and Economics and even
Technical Sciences addressing one or more of the following topics:

  • UBI and arguments of freedom, solidarity, social and gender justice
  • Changing time allocation and shifting time sovereignty, voluntarism and creativity
  • Legal aspects of UBI
  • Experiments and microsimulations on UBI’s level and impact
  • UBI in the digital age / Robots, AI, Labor, and the Welfare State
  • The European Pillar of Social Rights, UBI, and Euro-Dividend: Creating European Solidarity
  • Financial feasibility of a UBI and financing concepts of a Euro-Dividend
  • EU labour market effects and migration (on international level and within the EU)

Please send title and abstract of about one-page in length by June 11th, 2018, to
[email protected] Participants will be informed about the acceptance of
their papers by July 2nd.

Keynote Speakers:

  • Olli Kangas (Kela, Finland)
  • Philippe Van Parijs (Université catholique de Louvain)
  • Antje Schrupp (freelance journalist)
  • Mancolm Torry (London School of Economics)

Organization:

  • Sascha Liebermann (Alanus University, Alfter)
  • Bernhard Neumärker (University of Freiburg)
  • In cooperation with: Frankreichzentrum, Freiburg

Organized by the Department of Economic Policy and Constitutional Economic Theory we aim to gather relevant leading researchers and thinkers in Europe to discuss an EU wide approach of a basic income.

If you have any questions Max Trommsdorff glad to assist you.

UBIE Meeting & General Assembly in BERLIN @ werkstatt der kulturen
Mar 21 – Mar 24 all-day
In just a few months time, citizens across Europe will be asked to elect a new European Parliament. As citizens, we aim for a new majority that wants to re-build solidarity in the EU and is open to discuss basic income as a new basis for a social Europe. So the focus of Unconditional Basic Income’s 2019 General Assembly – besides of electing a new Core Group – will be on possible campaigns before and after the elections.

The next UBIE meeting will take place in Berlin21-24 March 2019. The General Assembly will take place on Saturday, 23 March. Before and after, we intend to organise working group sessions (Friday and Sunday) and also some public debates (possibly Thursday and Friday).

  • Thursday, 21 March, 7pm: Public Event on Basic Income Experiments
  • Friday, 22 March, 4-8pm: Discussion on UBIE’s priorities for 2019/20
  • Saturday, 23 March, 9am-7pm: General Assembly
  • Sunday, 24 March, 9am-2pm: Workshops

We will get back to you with more details and an official invitation soon.

We are meeting in Berlin, as we were not able to secure the rooms we needed in Brussels for a conference there as we originally planned. But we still plan to do this conference later this year, i.e. September/October.
Kind greetings,
the UBIE Core Group

Sep 21 @ 13:00 – 17:00

Om mensen vrij te laten worden is naast het wegnemen van angst het bestrijden van armoede de belangrijkste politieke inzet. Dat is de strekking van het betoog van de politiek filosofe Hannah Arendt om vrijheid te kunnen realiseren.

Programma:

  • Ontvangst
  • Interactieve Podiumbijdrages over “Cash Transfers, basisinkomen Ontwikkelingslanden, doel basisinkomen in Nederland en internationaal, wat doet een basisinkomen met de mens.
  • Afsluiting

Het definitieve programma met de sprekers zal op de website www.vrijzinnigepartij.nl staan. Interessant, dus noteer van de datum, zaterdagmiddag 21 september in je agenda.
