We will be publishing a range of materials during the course of the project.  These materials will be aimed at academic and non-academic stakeholders and the general public. At the conclusion of the project, we will present one or two draft bills of the legal frameworks that appear most promising from a feminist perspective, as a focus for further policy discussion and public engagement.
