Panel 1: Education as a shared birthright
On the first panel we’ll examine education as a shared birthright (both historically and at its current state of development). We’ll ask how the concept of a shared birthright might help us confront the creeping commodification of education systems.
Speakers: Stanislav Holubec (lecturer and sociologist), Stanislav Štech (university lecturer and pro-rector of Charles University)
Panel 2: Shared birthright and a universal basic income
On the second panel we’ll compare the concept of a shared birthright and the idea of a universal basic income. What are their advantages and disadvantages? Are they mutually compatible? How can they be put into practice politically?
Speakers: Jakub Horňáček (sociologist and journalist), Martin Brabec (MDA and activist with the initiative for a universal basic income), Miluše Kotišová (activist with the initiative for a universal basic income)
