The Western Academy for Advanced Research brings together interdisciplinary and international teams of scholars to address major issues facing humanity through periods of dedicated focus.

To make these solutions a reality, The Western Academy presents themes on which Western Fellows, Visiting Fellows, postdoctoral scholars and graduate students focus their research over focused periods of enquiry.

Results of each theme will be captured in a high quality, open access monograph–The Western Academy Monograph Series—which will be published within 15 months of the end of a theme. Dissemination will focus on electronic media, but the Monograph Series will also be available in print form upon request.

Given the emphasis on public awareness, theme outputs should be available in accessible language and formats that can both inform and engage the public-at-large.
