The Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia acknowledges and pays its respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, including the Ngunnawal and Ngambri people of the Canberra region on whose traditional lands the Academy’s national office is located. The Academy is committed to using its standing and drawing on the expertise of its Fellows (both Indigenous and non-Indigenous) to facilitate and advance recognition and involvement of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people and knowledge in social science research and engagement activities.
