Project index

At the start of each project, the research team prepared a short outline of their planned research. The project plans are provided for the 26 projects.

In September 2001, a short summary of each project was prepared, giving a resume of its background and aims, and highlighting key findings. These project summaries are also provided for the 26 projects. It should be noted that, particularly for projects still in progress in summer 2001, the summaries provide only an interim review of findings. Further information on projects can be obtained from the ESRC REGARD database or from project teams.
