PORTUGAL: XVIII Autumn Conference in the University of Minho

Dedicating its XVIII Autumn Conference to Thomas Morus’s 500 year anniversary of his work Utopia, the Political Science group from the University of Minho (through its center of humanistic studies) has organized an event to be held in the 17th and 18th of November.


This Conference, titled “A utopia de um rendimento básico incondicional” (“The utopia of a universal basic income”), aims at fueling the reflection upon basic income as a political and social project for a globalized world in constant technological change. Three keynote speakers have been invited: Martim Avillez Figueiredo, Jorge Silva and Raquel Varela.

    I’ll settle for a poverty-level individualized tapering income for adult citizens with medical goods & services and residential education facilities for orphans and children of single parents in a community of nations where politicians are accountable to their local constituencies, especially concerning cross-border trade & taxes.
