Reasons for the general insecurity
with Klaus Dörre

A feeling of diffuse insecurity has gripped people's hearts. Studies show that even before the pandemic and the war in Ukraine, virtually everyone in this society felt visibly precarious - even those who are well off. Where are the roots of the social insecurity that is shaping the emotional and political landscapes of our time? Who or what is actually in danger?


Ways out of the general insecurity
with Barbara Fried and Melanie Brazzell

What strategies are available to us as ways out of the general insecurity? What interpersonal and socio-political practices can we use to counter the real dangers of the present? As a first attempt to answer these questions, the panel will discuss the approaches of infrastructures of solidarity and transformative justice.
