Description:
ZiF Workshop ??_Charity Economy: International Dimensions and Political Perspectives??? - Center for Interdisciplinary Research
Location:
Bielefeld, Methoden 1, Center for Interdisciplinary Research, Germany
Subject:
A growing number of people in Europe are no longer capable of financing their everyday expenses, neither from their earned income nor from a public transfer income. In reaction, an also rapidly growing number of new initiatives have been established: like food pantries and clothing distribution centers. These charity based initiatives are often run by charity organizations and local churches. In social sciences this widely spread, but less perceived phenomenon is called ???charity economy??. The workshop is meant (a) to open an inter-disciplinarian and international discussion of that new charity economy; and (b) to compare this phenomenon with alternatives, especially self-organized sharing networks. Such a perspective will allow positioning the phenomenon of a new charity economy in an adequate way to the current transformation of welfare. This, however, requires the participation of experts from cultural anthropology, economy, law, media analysis, political sciences, sociology and social work.
