For 100 years women have been able to vote and to be voted. Nevertheless the women's quote in the german parliament does not correspond to the percentage of women of the total population. Currently also only 31 % in the Bundestag are women. 

"More women in the parliaments!" is a present demand in politics, science and society. That is the topic we want to talk about in this event. For that we have invited well-known experts.

More information will follow soon.

Discussion: "Guaranteed Basic Income: Utopia or dystopia?"

The idea of a guaranteed and unconditional basic income has become quite popular in many countries and finds advocats across an astonishingly broad spectrum. Is it really a desirable utopia, or more a dystopia for various reasons? Two scholars will share their rather critical perspectives with us and will engage in the discussion:

Silke Bothfeld, political scientist and Professor at the University of Applied Sciences Bremen
Karl Brenke, economist at the DIW Berlin (German Institute for Economic Research)

The discussion will be moderated by the journalist John Goetz, the NDR-editor for investigations at ARD-Hauptstadtstudio (Berlin) and a member of the investigative team at the Süddeutsche Zeitung.
