After decades of state retrenchment and market expansions, the question remains whether there is still a role to play for state provision of welfare in developing countries? FAU will take up the tradition of informal, in-depth discussions among researchers, lecturers, practitioners and students in the tranquil surroundings of rural Djursland.
