Eduardo García de Enterría y Martínez-Carande, 1984 Prince of Asturias Laureate for Social Sciences, has died.

The jury agreed by majority vote to grant the Award to Eduardo García de Enterría y Martínez-Carande “as they deem him to be a lecturer and jurist of recognised prestige in Spain and abroad who, on the basis of a wide knowledge of the Continental and Anglo-Saxon legal systems, has performed important research and teaching work, reflected in highly valuable publications and accepted as methodological guidance by a school of disciples and intellectual heirs, with a marked influence upon the scientific renewal of Administrative Law and upon the focus of other sectors of Public Law, having been able to reconcile, to this end, the rigour of theoretical formulation with the practical aspect of problems.”, as reflected in the Minutes dated 22nd June 1984.

The jury was chaired by José María Aguirre Gonzalo and made up of Álvaro Cuervo García, Enrique Fuentes Quintana, Manuel García Pelayo, Antonio Hernández Gil, Juan Rof Carballo, Luis Ángel Rojo Duque, Joaquín Ruiz-Giménez, Julio Segura Sánchez, Enrique Tierno Galván and Rodrigo Uría González, with José Ignacio García Lomas acting as secretary.

The Awards Ceremony took place on 16th October and was presided over by TM The King and Queen, accompanied by Infanta Elena. The speeches at the ceremony were given by the then Foreign Ministers of Colombia and Venezuela, Isidro Morales Paúl and Augusto Ramírez  Ocampo, respectively, the then Secretary of Foreign Relations of Mexico, Bernardo Sepúlveda, and the former Foreign Minister of Panama, Oydén Ortega Durán, all of whom were representing the Contadora Group; as well as by Francisco Grande Covián, Jury Member for the Technical and Scientific Research Award; Graciano García, then Director of the Prince of Asturias Foundation; and HM The King.
