Forum Bedingungsloses Grundeinkommen PDF Drucken E-Mail
Geschrieben von: Dr. Philipp Schuster   
Donnerstag, den 06. August 2015 um 15:58 Uhr

Symposium an der Alanus Hochschule am 10. und 11. September 2015

Die Forschung zum Bedingungslosen Grundeinkommen kreist bisher vorwiegend um Fragen seiner Auswirkungen auf Arbeitsangebot und Finanzierung. Wenig thematisiert wird, welche Folgen es für die Lebensführung im Allgemeinen haben könnte, ob es sich eher autonomiefördernd oder -hemmend, gemeinwohlfördernd oder -schädigend auswirken würde. Welche Folgen könnte es darüber hinaus für die Sozialisation, das Bildungswesen, das Berufsethos, die Gesundheit oder die Soziale Arbeit haben?

Bislang vorgelegte Studien nutzen vorwiegend Modellsimulationen, um etwaige Auswirkungen zu ermessen. Die dafür getroffenen Annahmen sind allerdings selten Gegenstand einer empirischen Überprüfung und setzen somit etwas voraus, dass es erst zu untersuchen gilt. Forschung in der Tradition hermeneutischrekonstruktiver Verfahren gibt es in diesem Zusammenhang bislang kaum. Gerade sie könnten jedoch Erkenntnisse über handlungsleitende Überzeugungen und konkrete Handlungskonstellationen geben, die weitreichende Schlussfolgerungen erlauben.

Das Symposium versteht sich als Forum zur Diskussion und Entwicklung von Forschungsfragen rund um das Bedingungslose Grundeinkommen. Es soll dazu beitragen, die vielfältigen, häufig übersehenen Zusammenhänge, in denen das Bedingungslose Grundeinkommen ebenso zu sehen ist, deutlich zu machen. Angesichts unverhältnismäßig großer Erwartungen an wissenschaftliche Expertise soll es auch darum gehen zu erwägen, welchen Beitrag Wissenschaft überhaupt zur Auslotung von Auswirkungen eines Grundeinkommens leisten kann und wo ihre Grenzen sind.

Die Veranstaltung richtet sich vor allem an Wissenschaftler, die sich mit Fragen rund um das Bedingungslose Grundeinkommen schon beschäftigt haben oder beschäftigen wollen.

Weitere Informationen sowie Informationen zur Anmeldung (bis zum 27. August) sind hier oder über Andreas Zäh, Diese E-Mail-Adresse ist gegen Spambots geschützt! JavaScript muss aktiviert werden, damit sie angezeigt werden kann. erhältlich.

INVITATION / CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT
The WU Gutmann Center for Portfolio Management is proud to invite to its eight symposium.

WU GUTMANN CENTER SYMPOSIUM 2015:
“RETIREMENT AND ASSET MANAGEMENT”
http://www.gutmann-center.at/gc/whatwedo/bridging/symposia/

AUGUST 19, 2015 – 09:00-17:30

Venue: WU Wien (Vienna University of Economics and Business) Welthandelsplatz 1, Festsaal 1, 1020 Vienna, Austria

Concerns about financing pensions, retirement planning, demographics and the long-term performance of pension funds have existed even before the financial crisis. The current economic situation, as well as the short- to medium-term outlook have not alleviated these concerns. On the contrary, the retirement-related challenges for households, the investment industry and economies around the world are still a major subject of political, economic and scientific debate, and will remain a challenge for societies around the world in the coming years.

The main purpose of the WU Gutmann Symposium 2015 is to discuss various aspects of retirement, in particular its implications and relevance for asset management. The papers of the symposium will focus on the following range of topics: the role of financial institutions, lifetime investment strategies, saving for future generations, financial literacy, and other aspects related to the general topic.
Note that the WU Gutmann Center Symposium 2015 will take place on the day before the 42nd Annual Meeting of the European Finance Association (EFA) (https://www.efa2015.org). Both conferences will take place on the new WU Campus (https://www.wu.ac.at/campus/en). The EFA Annual Meeting opens on August 19 in the evening, after the symposium has been concluded.

We are proud to welcome highly renowned experts from all over the world who will present their state-of-the-art research in the field and cordially invite you to attend the WU Gutmann Center Symposium 2015.
