This chapter pulls together the main threads linking each of the previous chapters, summarises their contributions to a policy manifesto inspired by Peter and emphasises the main issues for research, teaching and campaigning intended to promote social justice. It then considers the challenges that this presents to the major constituency that Peter addressed throughout his life, policy makers. It finally turns inwards, to colleagues and students of social policy, to encourage them to be inspired by Peter's legacy, to take up the torch of social justice and, in doing so, to become more public in their campaign.
