SEE YOU AGAIN FOR THE NEXT MATCHPOINTS SEMINAR MAY 24-26, 2018 AT AARHUS UNIVERSITY.
THEME: WELFARE

The welfare state is one of the greatest achievements of Western societies. It provides income protection to the jobless and care for the sick and the old. Without it, millions would suffer from poverty and ailments. Therefore, it is also no surprise that voter surveys in Denmark demonstrate over and over again that voters prefer a solid and reliable welfare system to reduced tax payment.

Yet the welfare state is challenged. Rising costs and deep socio-economic changes such as globalization and automatization require us to answer new, pressing questions: How do we ensure equal opportunities for everyone in a globalized and skills-intensive economy? What are the political consequences if we fail? How do we best utilize automatization in public service delivery? What moral dilemmas do automated public service delivery present us with?

The MatchPoints Seminar 2018 brings experts from a variety of different fields together with welfare state practitioners to explore these and related questions.
