Submission to the Review Panel of Eminent Persons

On 14 December 2022 the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia made a submission to the Discussion Paper for the review of Australia’s migration system.


The global market for research talent has never been more contested. Attracting and retaining a diverse range of specialist researchers across all disciplines is vital to support knowledge exchange and ensure Australia’s broader research and innovation system facilitates economic growth and a more prosperous Australia.


The Academy makes four recommendations which are directed at ensuring there is a clear pathway to citizenship so Australia can attract and retain eminent researchers from the social sciences.
