The 2011-2012 series ‘The State in a Globalising World: problematic, yet indispensable’ looked at how the concept of the state and its roles are defined in different parts of the world, and at the ways in which states cooperate with other states. The series also looked at other actors, including civil society and the private sector, which increasingly operate on a global level: what issues are dealt with at local, regional, national and international level: what is left to the private sector, and what role could be played by NGOs at the different levels? Can we expect the national triangle of state-market-civil society to be replicated at the international level? Or should we move beyond this classic triangle?

|14 September 2012: Closing Conference – The state in a globalising world: Providing water in Africa||Output:|
On Friday September 14 the SID NL annual conference took place in the Glazen Zaal in The Hague. This year we cooperated with the African Studies Centre (ASC) and Vitens Evides International (VEI), supported by NCDO and the Worldconnectors.
The conference is the closing session of the SID 2011-2012 Lecture Series ‘The State in a Globalizing World: problematic, yet indispensable’, in which we aimed to understand the changing role of the nation state, and its relations with other actors including other states, corporates and civil society. During the conference we applied gained knowledge to the vital theme of providing water. We looked at the cooperation of a private partner with both the Dutch and an African State in providing drinking water to households. What works and what does not? Who is responsible for what within the reality of multi-level-governance, among a variety of actors?
