The Research School of Social Sciences (RSSS) was one of the four foundation research schools of the Institute of Advanced Studies at ANU. For decades it has been a forerunner in social sciences research. It has a proud history and a wonderful depth of talent and outstanding scholarship. We convene workshops, public lectures, debates and roundtables that address issues of public and community importance, and these can be found in the websites of the individual schools and centres.
