SCAR XXXV WP18: Humanities and Social Sciences Group Proposal

SCAR XXXV Delegates Meeting, Davos, Switzerland, 25-26 June 2018

SCAR XXXV WP18: Humanities and Social Sciences Group Proposal 

Agenda Item: 4.3.4.

Person Responsible: D. Liggett, E. Leane and C. Lüdecke


Executive Summary


Elizabeth Leane (AUS), Daniela Liggett (NZ), and Cornelia Lüdecke (GER)


Our proposal is to establish a permanent Humanities and Social Sciences Group (HSSG) within SCAR. The key aim of such a group, analogous to the existing Science Groups, would be to initiate, develop and coordinate rigorous and high quality international research on the Antarctic region within the Humanities and Social Sciences (HASS); to provide independent advice to the ATCMs on issues requiring disciplinary expertise outside the natural sciences; and to coordinate with existing science groups on issues that call for a multidisciplinary approach.


Delegates approve the formation of a Humanities and Social Sciences Group (HSSG).
