Members

PROPHE depends heavily on the development of its international network of members. An aspiration is that members operate increasingly as a Group, with overlapping yet autonomous agendas, frameworks, and methods. PROPHE also has a mission in building a global base of young scholars.
See below for list of all members or see each of the five sections on the left for more details.
