Crawford School’s Professor Robert (Bob) Costanza has been elected a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences in Australia, for his work related to public policy.

Professor Costanza, who is a Vice-Chancellor’s Chair in Public Policy at Crawford School, has been recognised for ‘scholarly distinction in research or the advancement of social sciences’.

“It is a great honour being elected a Fellow,” Professor Costanza says.

“It’s a recognition of my work and the opportunity to interact with other eminent academics across a range of disciplines that I would not otherwise have had.”

The recognition boosts Crawford School’s already substantial representation in the Academy.

Professor Costanza, whose areas of expertise span a range of disciplines, has been bridging disciplines to study humans and the rest of nature from a holistic perspective.

“Hopefully, I can help integrate across the many disciplines represented in the academy,” he says.

“I’d like to thank my sponsors from the Academy - Bruce Chapman, David Stern, and Quentin Grafton - and also Tom Kompas, former director of the Crawford School, who was instrumental in bringing me to ANU, and my colleague and co-author, Ida Kubiszewski.

“But really I thank all the faculty at Crawford, Fenner and ANU in general. It’s a great and inspiring place to work.”
