The second annual FRIBIS conference in October 2022 gave an opportunity to reflect on global developments and challenges through Basic Income research and advocacy. The three-day conference consisted of three keynotes, all focusing on current international challenges and ways in which societies could encounter them with basic income. The main conference was organized by the two international FRIBIS Teams: Water-Energy-Food Nexus and Foreign Aid Basic Income (WEF_FABI) together with Basic Income for Nature and Climate (BINC). Parallel sessions from other FRIBIS teams and members as well as external researchers and advocates from multiple disciplines and fields of expertise completed the program. A selection of the contributions is available in this volume.
FRIBIS is a competence network at the University of Freiburg. Led by Prof. Dr. Bernhard Neumärker it conducts interdisciplinary research on Basic Income. The board of directors is drawn from the departments of Economic Policy and Order Theory (Götz Werner Professorship), Psychology, Caritas Science (Faculty of Theology), Ethnology, Computer Science and Educational Science. The FRIBIS matrix consists of international, multi-topic teams composed of advocates of basic income and academics in the field who research and publicly discuss Basic Income from various interdisciplinary and international perspectives.
