Communication and Meetings
The Project Director and the International Team met three times a year on the occasion of the week-long research workshops in which all researchers participated, and the purpose of which was to facilitate scholarly debate and the development of new knowledge. The meetings of the Project Director with the International Team members were intended to review and discuss task force findings, to assign tasks and responsibilities to the task forces, to resolve administrative issues, to approve public release of project documents and to approve admittance of new members.
