In Memoriam: Luis Eduardo González

September 15, 2016

The Kellogg Institute has been saddened to hear of the death of former Visiting Fellow Luis Eduardo González in Montevideo, Uruguay, on September 10.

A scholar and public intellectual with many ties to the Kellogg community, González passed away at age 70. Formerly a professor of political science at several universities in Uruguay, he was most well known as the cofounder and director of CIFRA, an applied social science consulting firm that specialized in public opinion polling and consulting.

After studying sociology in Argentina, he earned his PhD in political science at Yale University, working with Juan Linz. González was the author of books and articles on Uruguayan and Honduran politics, Central American party systems, and comparative Latin American politics as well as a Kellogg Institute working paper. He was also a frequent contributor to Uruguay’s El País and a commentator on politics for radio and television.

Kellogg faculty fellows and staff members remember González fondly from his 2008 visiting fellowship. We extend our sincere condolences to his family.
