  16. 16. Key messages and the research agenda going forward1. The evolving international landscape matters: shifting wealth & growing policy spillovers   national reform strategies must take into account the international dimension2. Changing domestic conditions: emergence of a middle-class while persisting pockets of poverty and rising inequality   Effective governments needed: taxation, fiscal legitimacy and quality of public services  Compensation measures for losers – but carefully identify who stands to win and loose (voice and representation)3. The social cohesion dimension is increasingly relevant  Social cohesion as a means and an end  Civic participation to reinforce the sense of belonging and responsibility towards a social contract  Leadership and commitment
