This chapter reflects on the 12 case studies contained in this book, and identifies some of the key issues, trends, and policy measures which emerge from the previous chapters. Consideration is also given to the lessons that can be learned from these countries and the extent to which they may be generalizable and applicable in other contexts across the world. The chapter is structured according to the main headings used in each of the country-specific chapters.
