Britain’s Academy of Social Sciences Names Spring 2024 Fellows

March 11, 2024 431

Some 41 social scientists drawn from 25 higher education institutions, as well as think tanks, research institutes and nonprofits from the United Kingdom, Australia and South Korea, have been named the newest fellows of Britain’s Academy of Social Sciences. The announcement came on March 4.

An independent peer review selects each cadre of academy fellows based on the scholars’ academic excellence and impact and for the wider contributions their work in social science has brought to society at large.

“Their contributions have furthered our understanding in tackling a wide range of societal challenges including mitigating health and economic inequalities, understanding the causes and effects of hate crime, the development of inclusive practices in education, and the future of cities,” the academy quoted its president, Will Hutton. “We look forward to working with them to further promote the vital role the social sciences play in all areas of our lives.”

The academy’s fellowship now numbers more than 1,500
