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
CALL FOR PAPERS

It looks like the definition of work is changing. What happens when jobs become rapidly automated at the same time that more and more people become self-employed freelancers? Should we be creating jobs just to keep people busy so they too can earn a living? What happens if we secured income instead of jobs?
Basic Income Café (a project by Martina Huynh in collaboration with Manon van Hoeckel) wants to find out how the definition of work and income is changing in The Netherlands today. What kind of work do we value and why? Does the salary really reflect how much we appreciate someone’s work?
For that we are using the interactive installation (also called Basic Income Café), in which coffee is used as a metaphor to visualize the flow of money in two basic income economies. Your first cup of ‘basic income’ coffee is for free, for more you need to physically work (grind up some beans).
So come watch the coffee taxes flow, while experiencing economic models in new playful ways by drinking coffee!
At the opening, we have short presentations by:
- Martina Huynh who will talk about Basic Income Café and the research behind the project – How is the topic of basic income being discussed at the moment?
- Manon van Hoeckel who will share her findings of working with homeless youngsters in The Hague. What does it mean to be financially vulnerable today and how can design contribute to ease conversation between diverse groups of people?
Basic Income Café will be open three days a week from September 19 to December 19.
Experience and Discuss
Centraal in dit project staat het Basic Income Café, een interactieve installatie ontworpen door Martina Huynh. In deze installatie wordt koffie gebruikt als metafoor voor de geldstroom in twee alternatieve economieën.
Een belevenis an sich, een plek voor onderzoek en een gespreksstarter met als onderwerp het basisinkomen
Tijdens de opening zullen er korte presentaties gegeven worden door:
- Martina Huynh – Hoe wordt er tegenwoordig gekeken naar het basisinkomen?
- Manon van Hoeckel -Hoe is het om financieel kwetsbaar te zijn? En hoe kan design een bijdrage leveren aan het vergemakkelijken van conversatie tussen verschillende groepen mensen?
Kom koffiedik kijken en praat mee over de toekomst van werk en inkomen!
