The Academy of the Social Sciences was established in 1971 to recognise and champion excellence in the social sciences and to provide evidence-based advice on a range of social policy issues. In November, the Academy announced the election of three, highly-qualified University academics on the basis of a sustained and internationally-distinguished contribution to their field. These are:

We congratulate Professor Wheeler in joining this elite group.
