My work at the NIAS mainly revolved around two collaborative projects. With Erik Krabbe, a manuscript entitled Commitment in Dialogue was almost completed. I also worked with Frans van Eemeren and Rob Grootendorst on the project ‘Relevance in Argumentative Discourse’. I also completed my own manuscript Slippery Slope Arguments which has been accepted for publication.
