Among the 1,149 people receiving Queen’s Birthday Honours this year are several British social scientists, a recognition of the importance of social science, the disciplines’ representative body has said.

The chair of the Academy of Social Sciences, professor Cary Cooper AcSS, was knighted for services to social science in the list. He is professor of organisational psychology and health at Lancaster University. He is the author or editor of over 160 books, on occupational stress, women at work and industrial and organisational psychology.

Cooper has written over 400 scholarly articles for academic journals, and is a frequent contributor to national newspapers, TV and radio. He is currently founding editor of the Journal of Organizational Behavior, former editor-in-Chief of the medical journal Stress & Health and co-editor of the Journal of Organizational Effectiveness. He is a Ffllow of the British Psychological Society, the Royal Society of Arts, the Royal Society of Medicine, the Royal Society of Public Health, the British Academy of Management and an academician of the Academy of Social Sciences.

In 2001, he was awarded a CBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List for his contribution to occupational safety and health.

Other awards for services to social science included Commanders of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) awards to Hilary Graham, professor of health sciences, University of York; Denise Lievesley AcSS, professor of statistics and head of School of Social Science and Public Policy, King’s College London; and Alan Walker AcSS, professor of social policy and social gerontology, University of Sheffield.

“These awards are recognition of social science’s importance for our society and of the vital work of the Academy – our Chair and our President, Professor Ivor Crewe, have now both received knighthoods,” the executive director of the Academy of Social Sciences, Stephen Anderson.

The Queen’s (or King’s) Birthday Honours have been awarded annually since 1901, and are the highest civilian recognition offered by the British establishment.


The Academy of Social Science’s mission is to promote social sciences in the United Kingdom for the public benefit. The academy is composed of individual academicians and learned societies; it responds to government and other consultations on behalf of the social science community, organizes meetings about social science and seminars on topics that span social science disciplines, and sponsors a number of efforts that promote social science and enhance its value to society.
