I'd like to have a full empty line between paragraphs and no indentation. Setting the parskip = fulloption accomplishes this but doesn't work inside tabutables as the following example shows:

\documentclass[parskip=full]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{tabu}

\begin{document}
\begin{tabu}{X[0.5]X[0.5]}
\blindtext 

\blindtext
& 
\blindtext 

\blindtext \\
\end{tabu}
\blindtext

\blindtext
\end{document}

What is the best way of accomplishing the intended formatting inside the tabuenvironment?

Within parboxes, the parskip is set to 0pt. You can save the parskip that was active before the environment and use it in the tabular, best to make new columntypes.

\documentclass[parskip=full]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{blindtext}
\usepackage{tabu}

\begin{document}
\newlength{\saveparskip}
\setlength{\saveparskip}{\parskip}
\begin{tabu}{>{\setlength{\parskip}{\saveparskip}}X[0.5]X[0.5]}
    \blindtext 

    \blindtext & \blindtext 

    \blindtext \\
\end{tabu}
\blindtext

\blindtext
\end{document}

Generally, having paragraphs in a tabular environment is a sure sign for misusing. Have you considered a list-environment instead?
