  • The extent of implementation of the actions underpinning the high-level goals in NAPinclusion;
  • The relevance and comprehensiveness of the monitoring and governance structures underpinning NAPinclusion; and
  • Any lessons relevant to inform the approach to dealing with social inclusion at a cross-government level.
