A new program for the Indo-Pacific aims to revolutionise social science research capacity, networks, and influence across the region. Launched in November 2023, Boosting Social Sciences and their Contribution to Better Lives is a collaborative partnership between the Association of Asian Social Science Research Councils (AASSREC) and the Global Development Network (GDN), with generous funding from Canada’s International Development Research Centre (IDRC).

This program will be coordinated by the Academy in its capacity as AASSREC secretariat. Read more on the AASSREC website.
