Overview of Policy & Research

One of the key roles of the Australian Academy of the Humanities is to act as a consultant and advisory body on matters concerning the humanities.

The Academy provides independent, expert advice to government, industry, the media, cultural organisations and community groups by:
  • advocating for, and supporting, the appointment of humanities experts on select committees;
  • providing reports and submissions to government reviews and inquiries;
  • giving evidence at hearings on policy matters;
  • convening specialist committees on matters of particular public policy concern, inviting the participation of Fellows and non-Fellows willing to contribute their expertise, influence and skills.
The Languages Reference Group advises the Academy Council on matters concerning languages policy.

Through the Australian Council of Learned Academies (ACOLA) the Academy also collaborates on research projects with Australia's three other Learned Academies, including the Securing Australia's Future programme..
