Professor Colin Crouch, Fellow of the British Academy

Archived Article • 12 July 2005 • Press release
It has been announced that Professor Colin Crouch, Professor of Governance and Public Management, has been elected as a Fellow of the British Academy, the national academy for the humanities and the social sciences.

He is an economic sociologist, with particular interests in international comparative research at the interface between sociology, politics and the study of work and employment. His writings in comparative political economy constitute a programme of comparative analysis of the regulation of work and employment, the structure and behaviour of organised interest groups, and national governance regimes.

Professor Howard Thomas, Dean of Warwick Business School offered his congratulations on behalf of the whole school and said, "This is a wonderful recognition for Colin in particular, and for Warwick Business School in general. It attests to the strong research values held by Colin and the entire faculty of WBS."

Colin said he is "Delighted and honoured to receive this recognition." The announcement was to have been on 7th July, but due to the sad events in London that day, the arrangements were postponed until July 29th.

About the Academy

The British Academy was established by Royal Charter in 1902, under the full title of 'The British Academy for the Promotion of Historical, Philosophical and Philological Studies'. It is an independent and self-governing fellowship of scholars, elected for distinction and achievement in one or more branches of the academic disciplines that make up the humanities and social sciences, and is now organised in eighteen Sections by academic discipline. There are Ordinary Fellows, Senior Fellows (over the age of 70), overseas Corresponding Fellows, and Honorary Fellows (whose numbers are limited to twenty). Up to thirty-five new Ordinary Fellows may be elected in any one year. Since March 1998, the Academy has been located at 10 Carlton House Terrace.
