We will be hosting a number of events during the course of the project, and  also be engaging in public debates and policy developments.  The project will conclude with the launch of one or two proposed draft bills, representing the legal frameworks that appear most promising, to stimulate further policy discussion and public engagement, and an academic symposium.

If you would like to be notified of events, please join our mailing list.
