Jorge Pinto is a PhD candidate with a thesis on green republicanism and universal basic income, at the University of Minho, under the supervision of Roberto Merrill and Jurgen De Wispelaere.
Jorge is interested in contributing to the definition of a green republican political theory, promoting freedom as non-domination in an ecological sustainable planet. Furthermore, he is interested in understanding the ecological impacts of different models of basic income and what are the commonalities and the differences between a "weak" and a "strong" ecological universal basic income.
Jorge was part of the team organising the 17th BIEN Congress, in Lisbon, where he had the opportunity to present his current research on two different green cases for a basic income. He is co-authoring a book with Roberto Merrill, Sara Bizarro and Gonçalo Marcelo on basic income that will be published in June 2019.
