THE ROYAL IRISH ACADEMY IS IRELAND'S LEADING BODY OF EXPERTS IN THE SCIENCES AND HUMANITIES

Humanities and Social Sciences Committees

The Academy committees build public engagement and understanding of the sciences, humanities and social sciences.

In 2014 the Academy established ten multidisciplinary committees. The committees aim to promote co-operation across and within relevant scholarly disciplines and to advise Academy engagement in these areas. The committees exist to provide scientific and scholarly expertise and to promote the value of the sciences, humanities and social sciences. They do this through their programme of work, combining public engagement events, expert statements, responding to Government consultations and working with relevant international unions. We aim to undertake our work from a multidisciplinary perspective and collaborate on projects across committees.

About Academy Committees

The work of the committees is coordinated by the Academic Board. The board provides guidance to the committees and establishes themes for multidisciplinary projects.
