Date Released: Wed, 30 July 2014 16:15 +0200

The Head of Department, Prof Paul Bischoff comments: “We have learnt  with deep regret and sadness of the passing this past Saturday, 26th July 2014 of Dr John Daniel. John Daniel had a long association with this department, having served as Director of what was then the International Studies Unit (ISU) at this department in the early 1990s. More recently and for several years -up to the end of 2013 - he served as a very respected and highly valued external examiner to our department. Knowing of the valuable contributions he made to our department, as well as to the study of Political and International  Studies across Southern Africa over many decades, we mourn his passing due to illness at the relatively early age of 70.We pass our sincere condolences to Cathy, his wife, as well as his children and family.”
