|Abstract||The SID NL Closing Conference 2012 was organised on Friday September 14 in cooperation with the African Studies Centre (ASC) and Vitens Evides International (VEI), supported by NCDO and the Worldconnectors. It is the closing session of the SID 2011-2012 Lecture Series ‘The State in a Globalizing World: problematic, yet indispensable’, in which we aim to understand the changing role of the nation state, and its relations with other actors including other states, corporates and civil society. This conference is looking at a concrete case: the cooperation of a private partner with both the Dutch and an African State (Mozambique) in providing drinking water to households. What works and what does not? What is the potential of private sector involvement, and which role should the state have herein?|
