The Academy uses the varied experiences and expert recommendations of our vast network of Fellows to respond to government inquiries.  Inquiries are selected by the Policy and Advocacy Committee, often in consultation across the Fellowship.  We seek the views of interested Fellows, compile suggestions and relevant information, and then publish online for public viewing.

We also encourage Fellows to recommend government inquiries for the Academy to consider.  If you believe the Academy should make a submission, please contact the Secretariat.

Here are the Academy’s most recent submissions:
