Advisory Board

Our advisory board is comprised of stakeholders with on-the-ground knowledge and academic experts working in applied social science fields.

The advisory board will help broaden the project’s expertise and ensure early engagement with key audiences. The combination of academic and practitioner participants will enable the consortium to ensure that the research is not only scientifically sound but also outward looking and relevant for non-academic groups. Their role will include acting as disciplinary points of reference (identifying salient research questions from their fields of expertise), advising on public engagement, and commenting on drafts that are relevant to their expertise.
