The State

The focus will be on the changing roles of national states. Contrary to the often expressed view of the decreasing importance of the national state, this workshop will explore the opportunities for progress towards sustainability, focussing especially on the social as well as the environmental standpoint, and emphasising the chances for an approach which focusses on innovation.
