Publications arising from TRAPPED:

As the methodological development, fieldwork and analysis stages of TRAPPED progress, a number of publications will be produced. As they materialise these will become available on this page.

Previous publications relevant to the development of TRAPPED:

Previous research by the project participants has contributed to the conceptual evolution of TRAPPED. Please find links to relevant peer reviewed publications below.
