2018 Publications by INTRAC Members

We are starting a new tradition of publishing four times a year a post with new publications, divided by topics and based on the publications section in our website (only those in English and with a focus on journal articles and research reports). In this post, the publications of 2018-19 were included. Please note that some of the publication were relevant to more than one topic, but they were connected only to the main one.

You are invited to add your new publications on living care here: https://globalintrac.com/publications/submit/
