TTPI Fellow, Professor Peter Whiteford has been elected as a new Fellow of the Australian Academy of Social Sciences (ASSA). This year, 36 Australian social scientists have been elected for their distinguished contributions to their disciplines and to society.

ANU scholars Professor Renée Fry-McKibbin and Professor Kim Rubenstein have also been honoured as new ASSA Fellows.

President of the Academy of the Social Sciences in Australia, Professor Glenn Withers AO, congratulated the 19 women and 17 men elected this year:  ‘The strength of Australian social sciences is reflected in these appointments. Social sciences are a comparative advantage of Australia. Over half of the top ten global disciplinary rankings for Australian universities are in the social sciences’.

The New Fellows of the Academy will be formally welcomed and inducted at the Academy’s General Meeting and Annual Symposium, to be held in Canberra from 12-14 November 2018.
