  • Symposium
  • The Universal Basic Income as an Emancipatory Way Out of Capitalism

  • transform! europe supports the symposium on this controversially discussed topic. The universal basic income is gaining more and more public interest. For some it is a panacea, for others the final excess of neoliberalism, for more and more people an important milestone on the way to a free and solidary society.

    Based on the assessment that “THE” universal basic income does not exist, but a lot of different models are currently circulating, we want to approach the topic from a perspective that is emancipatory and critical of capitalism, explore possibilities and opportunities and also discuss pitfalls and obstacles.

    Some of the central questions are, to what extent an #UBI can contribute to a solidary society, what role the social state would take on, what would change for the working population, but also which inequalities could be reinforced. 

    We understand a symposium as a space for communication without hierarchy. Not the ones who know lecture the ones who do not know but topics are being discussed together and thus knowledge is not only transferred but also generated.    

     

    Speakers: Karl Reitter, Margit Appel, Branko Gerlič, Ronald Blaschke, Igor Kocijančič, Bettina Pirker;

    The conference will be held in German;
