Our work

Working in teams, network members will produce both foundational conceptual papers and practical policy guidance for the research topics taken up. Conceptual papers will be published quickly in white paper form, and also in scholarly journals. Policy guidance will be crafted for specific stakeholder partners, who will be engaged in the work from agenda design through to completed deliverable.
