Statement on Academic Freedom

The success of sociology and members of the Australian Sociological Association is dependent on the ability of our members to pursue knowledge for its own sake, to debate and deliberate freely through informed discussions and to protect these rights. These freedoms are to be exercised responsibly and with tolerance in accordance with the law and the Values Statement and policies of the Association.

The Australian Sociological Association, in alignment with its mission, aims and values, asserts its members to:

  • Foster principled and informed debate on all aspects of knowledge and society that is founded on rigorous, scholarly research.

  • Pursue knowledge in accordance with ethical and legal standards.

  • Disseminate research through applied work, learning and teaching, media, creative and publication outlets.
