Juan José Linz, Prince of Asturias Award for Social Sciences, has died.

The Jury decided by majority vote to confer the award on Juan José Linz Storch de Gracia "for his important contribution to contemporary political sociology.

His research has had a major international impact and has influenced the progress of social sciences, and his teaching work has been decisive for the progress made nowadays by sociology in Latin-American countries", as reflected in the Minutes of the Jury dated 24th April 1987.

The Jury was chaired by Joaquín Ruiz-Giménez and made up of Álvaro Cuervo, Antonio Domínguez Ortiz, Ángel Fernández Noriega, Fernando García de Cortázar, Eduardo García de Enterría, Salvador Giner, Alfredo Lafita, Landelino Lavilla, José López Muñiz y González Madroño, Aurelio Menéndez, Gregorio Peces-Barba, José Luis Pinillos, Alejandro Rebollo, Carlos Seco Serrano and Rodrígo Uría (acting as secretary).

The Awards Ceremony took place on 29th October in the presence of TM The King and Queen of Spain and HRH The Prince of Asturias.
