FRIBIS Winter School with Philippe van Parijs – Today’s global challenges and the UBI debate
Januar 16, 2023 - Januar 20, 2023
The Freiburg Institute for Basic Income Studies (FRIBIS) is inviting you to the first FRIBIS winter school, entitled “Today’s global challenges and the UBI debate”, and under the guidance of Philippe van Parijs, from January 16th to 20th 2023. Over the five days, the participants will focus on whether today’s big challenges, such as the climate crisis, the pandemic and international tensions and conflicts, put UBI on the backburner or provide grounds for its growth.
Inputs and readings around the implications of UBI for philosophy, economics and politics will provide the basis for discussions on the focal question. The results of these discussions will be collected in policy papers which participants will write in groups of one to four persons, as a follow-up of the winter school. As preparation, participants will be expected to have read Chapters 5, 6 and 7 of van Parijs’ book Basic Income: A Radical Proposal for a Free Society and a Sane Economy (2017).
For the winter school in 2023 FRIBIS invites PhD students as well as post-docs from all research fields connected to UBI (e.g., economics, political science, sociology, philosophy, and social and cultural studies). Requirements for attending the FRIBIS Winter School are a research interest in in the topic of UBI and current global challenges as well as some practice in the writing of academic papers. Please state your motivation to participate in the winter school in the application form below. The application deadline is Wednesday, December 7th 2022. Applicants will be informed of the outcome within one week of the deadline. Participation in the winter school is free of charge but places are limited.
The FRIBIS Winter School starts on Monday January 16th 2023, and ends at midday on Friday, January 20th 2023. Please be aware that the FRIBIS Winter School will be held offline.
