In the conclusion, the editors summarise the key points of each chapter and draw together the central themes and issues that have been addressed across chapters. This includes a discussion around the benefits and social justice outcomes of education professionals working with students, as well as with each other through collaborative approaches to peer mentoring. Four key themes are identified and discussed: flexible models of learning; the importance of time; trusting, respectful relationships; empowerment and foregrounding the voice of mentees. We review the similarities, challenges and difficulties that have been explored in the various contexts to locate the book and its various chapters within a broader field of research around mentoring in higher education within a global context. We conclude by positing further questions and invite readers to reflect upon their own practices in the light of these.
