About Submissions

The Academy seeks to reflect the varied experiences and expert recommendations of our vast network of Fellows , responding to governmentinquiries when the public policy challenges of the day call for independence and wide-ranging specialties. Inquiries are selected by the Policy and Advocacy Committee, often in consultation across the Fellowship. The views of interested Fellows are sought on each occasion, the resulting evidence compiled and given coherence and then published online for public viewing. Additionally, if you are a Fellow and would like to recommend an inquiry question for consideration by the Academy, recommendations are always welcome and can be received by the Secretariat.
