In memoriam: Prof. Alfred Stepan

Our research committee is saddened by the recent passing of Professor Alfred Stepan and extends its condolences to Prof. Stepan’s family. Professor Stepan made major contributions to the study of federalism, such as his seminal distinction between ‘coming together’ and ‘holding together’ federalism, and we all owe much to his research and scholarship.

Obituaries are available on the website of the Chicago Tribune and St Antony’s College, Oxford.
