The major share of the public and academic debate on the revenue and the spending side of the welfare state is directed towards the level and composition of the welfare state in advanced Western democracies. Our workshop aims at expanding the discussion in two respects: First, we address the welfare state beyond the OECD by explicitly analyzing developing countries or emerging markets. Second, we invited scholars focusing on the spending and the revenue side of the welfare state to get a more comprehensive picture of the welfare state. Until now, both coins of the welfare state have been discussed separately.

The economisation of medicine has become a controversial issue which urgently calls for an objective evaluation if we are to make sustainable advancements in our healthcare system. To this end, empirical studies, ethical evaluations from a medical, operational and macroeconomic point of view, as well as conceptual clarification are essential.
With this symposium, the Centre for Social Policy Research and the Senator of Health of the Free Hanseatic City of Bremen seek to contribute to an objectivization of this issue. The symposium will be held in German.

Indigenous communities have developed complex property rights with regard to their biological resources and the hereto-related knowledge. The sustainability of their customary practices crucially depends on the legal recognition of customary property rights which in turn is shaped by international law. This paper compares indigenous property rights policies in Brazil and India in the context of internationally binding agreements. Brazilian indigenous groups have successfully used the political opportunity structures to achieve the legal recognition of their customary property rules. Despite its widely recognized legitimacy, however, the Brazilian approach is substantially destabilized by international law. In India, by contrast, the semi-authoritarian character of the decision-making process tends to delegitimize the property claims of indigenous (adivasi) groups. At the same time, the ongoing dispossession of indigenous groups is indirectly supported by the implementation of international agreements. The paper concludes that indigenous groups may achieve the legal recognition of their customary property rules on a domestic level, if they are able to access the political decision-making structures. However, the effectiveness of nationally recognized customary property regulations is seriously harmed by international law, if they deviate from globally dominant approaches.

Thomas R. Eimer is Assistant Professor of International Relations at the Radboud University (Netherlands). His research interests focus on property rights regulations in the context of multi-level decision making processes.
