Call For Papers

IS NOW CLOSED

BIEN 2024 is focused on basic income’s potential as a tool for social transformation towards an economically just, politically inclusive and ecologically sustainable world. The Congress theme is thus about constructing a transformative vision of society – built on the principles of universal sufficiency, social and distributive justice, inclusion, care, and ecological sustainability – and exploring the role of basic income in that vision, and the best strategies to achieve it. See full description of the theme of the Congress here.

How to submit?
To propose a paper or presentation, please fill in the form here. The deadline for submissions is the 30th of April 2024. In case of any queries, write to biencongress2024@gmail.com

We are now welcoming papers, presentations and submissions to this festival of radical ideas. Along with a rich academic component, this Congress welcomes submissions from civil society, political action and independent actors on issues of social justice, ecological sustainability, basic income and beyond. We seek theoretical, empirical, political and/or creative submissions around basic income’s transformative social and ecological possibilities, covering what we know, what we still don’t, and what additional or complementary policies and programming are essential in achieving transformative change. We welcome contributions that are critical of a universal basic income.

Participants have two options for submission. One, to submit a paper or presentation to one of the existing panels being hosted. See full list here. These papers will be reviewed by the convenors of each of the panels. Second, if your paper or presentation does not fit any of the panels, they can be submitted to the general stream. These submissions will be reviewed by the Call for Papers team of BIEN 2024. Some of the emerging streams across the current panels include

  • Food and Land 

  • Gender 

  • Ecological Sustainability 

  • Politics and Political Economy 

  • Theory and Philosophy

  • Pilots and Experiments

  • Funding and Finance

  • Games

  • Creative Contributions

  • Regionally Focussed Streams

These streams are merely some of the nascent categories, and we welcome and will accept contributions beyond the themes and formats described above.
