Based on this research, the authors are asked to compile the research and drawing out the key findings and conclusions under each research question. Each author will be responsible for one chapter of the Concluding Report. The author team will comprise around 10 people who will be supported in their work by ELSA International and the Academic Coordinators.
The Concluding Report will be professionally published by Wolf Publishers with an ISB-Number. This means that the authors may be referenced for their work and gain academic recognition.
