Time to rethink the European Central Bank – Brussels (BE) @ KBR Royal Library of Brussels, auditorum Lippens
mei 23 @ 17:00 – 21:00

Since the election of President Macron in France, an intense debate is taking place over the future governance of the Eurozone, including calls for a Eurozone finance minister, a European Monetary Fund and a Eurozone budget. However, less attention is being paid to the prospects for reforming the Eurozone cornerstone’s institution itself: the European Central Bank (ECB).
Mario Draghi pledged to do “whatever it takes” to preserve the euro, and through its quantitative easing programme, the ECB has played an important role in rescuing the Eurozone economy. But this has come at a cost. The ECB’s monetary policy has attracted heavy criticism from across the political spectrum, with many challenging the ECB’s legitimacy, and questioning its ability to respond to the next crisis.
Early 2018, Positive Money Europe was founded as a new Brussels-based nonprofit organisation whose role is to scrutinize the ECB and offer proposals to improve monetary policy in the Eurozone.
At the occasion of our launch, we are delighted to invite you for this conference. It will feature two keynote speeches by distinguished speakers. Former governor of the Bank of Spain Miguel Angel Fernandez-Ordoñez will outline a fresh perspective on how the monetary system could be made more stable and safe, and Professor Annelise Riles(Cornell University) will provide a critical but constructive perspective on the politics of central banking. Looking forward, we will host a panel debate on the prospects for future ECB reform, featuring MEPs Jonas Fernandez, Molly Scott-Cato, Bruegel’s director Guntram Wolff (tbc) and Boris Kisselevsky, Head of the European Central Bank representation in Brussels.
Afterwards, Positive Money will offer a reception.
Registration is mandatory for the event. Please register by clicking below:

He also worked in the OECD, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund and currently he teaches at the IE University in Madrid. His experience as economist and member of the governing council of the European Central Bank during the euro crisis has led him to explore new ideas on how to reform the money and banking system.

Basic Income and the Euro-Dividend as sociopolitical pillars of the EU and its member countries – Freiburg (DE) @ University of Freiburg
okt 11 – okt 12 hele dag

BASIC INCOME AND THE EURO-DIVIDEND AS SOCIOPOLITICAL
PILLARS OF THE EU AND ITS MEMBER COUNTRIES
Interdisciplinary Conference at the University of Freiburg, Germany October 11-12, 2018
In Europe, the public debate about a universal basic income (UBI) is usually a national one. In
recent years a European version of a UBI has attracted more and more attention – primarily pushed
by the suggestion of Philippe Van Parijs titled a “Euro-Dividend”.
This conference aims to shed light at pros and cons of a EU wide UBI regulation and its relation to
national approaches from an interdisciplinary perspective. Both UBI approaches shall be analysed
and discussed with respect to justice, economic and migration effects, legal aspects, creation of
solidarity in the EU, and political viability. On the first day, the conference will address general
issues about UBI while the schedule of the second day contains EU-related concepts just like the
Euro-Dividend.
CALL FOR PAPERS
We invite papers from Philosophy, Sociology, Political Science, Law, and Economics and even
Technical Sciences addressing one or more of the following topics:

UBI and arguments of freedom, solidarity, social and gender justice
Changing time allocation and shifting time sovereignty, voluntarism and creativity
Legal aspects of UBI
Experiments and microsimulations on UBI’s level and impact
UBI in the digital age / Robots, AI, Labor, and the Welfare State
The European Pillar of Social Rights, UBI, and Euro-Dividend: Creating European Solidarity
Financial feasibility of a UBI and financing concepts of a Euro-Dividend
EU labour market effects and migration (on international level and within the EU)

Please send title and abstract of about one-page in length by June 11th, 2018, to
max.trommsdorff@vwl.uni-freiburg.de. Participants will be informed about the acceptance of
their papers by July 2nd.
Keynote Speakers:

Olli Kangas (Kela, Finland)
Philippe Van Parijs (Université catholique de Louvain)
Antje Schrupp (freelance journalist)
Mancolm Torry (London School of Economics)

Organization:
