Aboriginal Flag

The Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia acknowledges and pays its respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. 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.

The Academy will shortly be embarking on the process of developing a series of Reconciliation Action Plans, and will provide further information on its actions and progress on this page.

In July, 2020, the Academy was fortunate to work with its Indigenous and non-Indigenous Fellows to produce a digital Acknowledgement of Country video which you can view on this page.

For more information, please contact the Academy’s Chief Executive Officer Chris Hatherly (chris.hatherly@socialsciences.org.au).
