What keeps our society together?

The gap between the rich and the poor also opens up in Germany. Political, economic and social contradictions collide and endanger social cohesion in our modern society. Although this cohesion is of such great importance for the stability of a community and democracy. The ZEIT Foundation Ebelin and Gerd Bucerius and the Veranstaltungsforum Holtzbrinck Publishing Group will address this issue with the series of events "What keeps our society together?". The series of events started in 2017.

70 Years Basic Law. Does the Constitution protect our digital society?" - 10 September 2019

It is impossible to imagine the discussion about a common social canon of values without it: the Basic Law. For 70 years, the Basic Law has guaranteed the rights of individuals and collective social rights. Digitalisation in almost all areas of life has raised new questions. Is our Basic Law sufficient for this? Does it protect us sufficiently or do we need special basic digital rights?

Panellists:

  • Markus Beckedahl, founder and editor-in-chief, netzpolitik.org and founder, re:publica
  • Prof. Dr. Heinz Bude, Professor of Macrosociology, University of Kassel and co-initiator, Digital Charter
  • Prof. Dr. Gesche Joost, Head, Design Research Lab, Berlin University of the Arts and Principal Investigator, Weizenbaum Institute for Networked Society
  • Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, former Federal Minister of Justice

Moderation: Dr. Heinrich Wefing, Head of Politics Department, DIE ZEIT

Topic "Same Rights. Same Position. Who takes care of the community?" - 26 June 2019

Society is becoming more diverse, more enlightened, more tolerant. So it seems. Looking at the leading figures in politics, business and science, women, people from the eastern German states or with a migration background are still clearly outnumbered. The demand for "equal pay for equal work" has not yet been fully implemented. How can equal rights be implemented in society and what can we do about it?

Panellists:

  • Kübra Gümüsay, freelance journalist, activist and social media consultant
  • Jagoda Marinic, authoress, columnist and cultural manager
  • Prof. Dr. Nora Markart, professor of public law, Hamburg University and member of the executive board, Gesellschaft für Freiheitsrechte e.V.
