Abstract: I will discuss how we generalise the main properties of Haken 3-manifolds to arbitrary dimensions, and consider the following questions: Can we solve the word problem for Haken $n$-manifolds? What is the universal covering space of a Haken $n$-manifold?
I will describe some examples of Haken 4-manifolds, and list some problems for further work in this area.
