AGF - Event on the subsistence minimum of a child

Logo AGF

[06. 10. 2016] AGf invites to a discussion with Prof. Dr. Anne Lenze und Prof. Dr. Joachim Wieland on reforms of meeting the subsistence minimum of a child. The two lawyers will be discussing the topic between each other and together with the participants about ways how to achieve a subsistence minimum of a child. The debate will be on 17 November 2016, 13.30h - 16.00h in Berlin.

 

The system of meating the subsistence minimum of a child has been criticized for a long time. The combination of a child benefit and a tax free child allowance is incomprehensible to many and leads to social inequalities. Currently, the amount granted increases with the family’s income, enlarging the social gap between families. Furthermore, the amount of the subsistence minimum granted differs between social, fiscal and maintenance law and its overall level is also criticized as too low.

 

The aim of the discussion on 17 November is, based on the problems of the current system, to identify possible reform measures to ensure the subsistence minimum of each child. Prof. Dr. Anne Lenze und Prof. Dr. Joachim Wieland will present their respective ideas for reforms and take a position on key question of the subsistence minimum for children. Afterwards all together we will discuss possible future measures and their political feasibility.
