17° Congresso BIEN, Portugal

A Implementação de um Rendimento Básico

O que é?

A Associação Rendimento Básico Incondicional – Portugal, em parceria com o Centro de Ética, Política e Sociedade (CEPS), da Universidade do Minho, o Instituto Superior de Economia e Gestão (ISEG), o Centro de Investigação em Direito Europeu, Económico, Financeiro e Fiscal (CIDEEFF), ambos da Universidade de Lisboa, o Centro de História d’Aquém e d’Além-Mar (CHAM), da Universidade Nova de Lisboa, o partido PAN, e o movimento Unconditional Basic Income Europe (UBIE), pretendem levar a cabo, de 25 a 27 de Setembro de 2017, o 17° Congresso BIEN – A Implementação de um Rendimento Básico, no seguimento do convite a participação divulgado e que pode ser consultado aqui:

O rendimento básico incondicional (RBI), enquanto política potencialmente justa e realista, atrai actualmente a atenção da opinião pública. Isso torna-se visível à medida que importantes partidos políticos na Europa vão adoptando o RBI como um dos seus objectivos políticos. No âmbito do tema geral do nosso Congresso, discutiremos os diferentes aspectos das políticas de um rendimento básico.

Para além dos vários especialistas nacionais e internacionais, o congresso prevê juntar representantes de partidos políticos, da sociedade civil, de entidades empresariais, entre outros, para debater uma preocupação transversal a todos relativamente às crescentes desigualdades sociais, o desemprego estrutural e a sustentabilidade da Segurança Social, tanto na Europa como no mundo. Um evento que pretende reunir várias vozes críticas na procura de soluções e alternativas socialmente inovadoras.

Entre outros, os oradores principais serão:
