CCBS Director named Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences

Posted On: 02 Sep 2022

The Director of the Centre for Cross Border Studies, Dr Anthony Soares, has been conferred Fellowship of the Academy of Social Sciences. The Academy’s Fellows are highly accomplished individuals recognised for excellence in their fields and their wider contributions to the social sciences for public benefit.

The Academy’s Fellowship is made up of distinguished individuals from academic, public, private and third sectors, across the full spectrum of the social sciences. Through leadership, scholarship, applied research, policymaking, and practice, they have helped to deepen the understanding of, and address, some of the toughest challenges facing our society and the world.

All Academy Fellows are conferred following independent and robust peer review by the Academy’s Nominations Committee. They are selected on the basis of the substantial contributions they have made to policy and practice, and for going above and beyond the normal requirements of their roles.

Will Hutton, FAcSS, President of the Academy of Social Sciences, said: “The Academy of Social Sciences is delighted to welcome an excellent range of highly distinguished social scientists to join our ranks – as the work of social science becomes ever more important. We look forward to engaging with them in our work.”

Congratulations, Anthony!
