Andrew Linklater (August 3rd 1949 – March 5th 2023)

We are sorry to inform you that Andrew Linklater died on the morning of March 5th 2023, in Bronglais Hospital, Aberystwyth. Unknown to almost all of us, he had been suffering from a severe pulmonary illness for several years.
Andrew was Woodrow Wilson Professor Emeritus of Politics at Aberystwyth University and, in a series of books in recent years, was responsible for showing how the work of Norbert Elias was crucially relevant to the study of International Relations. But, above all, Andrew was among the most likeable people we have had the pleasure of knowing. He will be very greatly missed.

There will be no funeral – Andrew has chosen direct cremation with minimal fuss. But later on, at least one conference will be held in his memory.
