Louise Daniel 1962 - 2015

The ISSC was deeply saddened to learn about the death of our colleague and friend Louise Daniel.

Louise brought her talents to the ISSC, editing and managing the World Social Science Report, with great spirit and warm decency. Indeed, the report would not be what it is without her.

She gave enormous energy, passion and commitment to everything she did — both at work and in her personal life.

Louise had lived and worked in many countries. She had an amazing ability to sustain friendships across cultures and across great distances. She will be sorely missed, not just by her colleagues, but by all those who had the chance to call her a friend.

All of usĀ at the ISSC will remember most of all her strength. It was this fierce strength that gave her the dedication to want to help change the world. And in no small way, she has done.
