Call for Papers: The Politics of Universal Basic Incomes
Reykjavik, Iceland, June 22-24, 2020
This Call for Papers is interested in empirical studies that look at the social and political processes surrounding UBIs discussions, including pilot test and experiment designs and implementations, either at the local, national or supranational level, in Europe and elsewhere. Examples of questions that are particularly welcomed are: To what extent are these openings the result of successful UBI campaigns? How and to what extent have these ideas permeated political parties and leaders? When and how are civil society organizations (e.g. trade unions, women and feminist groups, migrants associations) willing to incorporate UBI to their demands? What are the resistances and oppositions that UBI advocates face? How has the public opinion reacted to UBI? How UBI’s framing impinges upon its popularity? What is the role of social movements and other forms of grassroot activism in these processes?
The purpose of this CFP is to gather papers to organize a panel(s) at the next conference of the Council for European Studies (CES), to be held in Reykjavik, Iceland, June 22-24, 2020.
