The Learned Academies of Australia are a great national resource. They recognise the skills and achievements of the nation’s top researchers, and seek to promote those talents for the public good. The Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia is the vehicle for affirming and encouraging the understanding and advancement of our society – the way that Australians live – through excellence in social science.
This 2017 Annual Report for the Academy records our activities across the financial year and provides detail of the many activities undertaken by the Academy. These range across workshops, forums, public lectures, roundtables, school outreach and more.
