Briefing Papers from PhD presenters
Each of the eight PhD/Early-Career researchers created a short briefing papers that describes the key elements of their work presented at the Young People’s Transitions Conference on 21 April. A compendium of these eight papers was created to enable both conference delegates and those unable to attend to access to the thought-provoking work of these researchers.
A big thank you to the eight presenters for sharing their work in this format for those who attended the conference and for those elsewhere!
