In the Jewish tradition, family and friends gather on the anniversary of one’s death to remember the blessing that was his life. Our close friend and colleague from the Stanford Center of International Conflict and Negotiation, Lee Ross, passed away in May of last year after a long but steady decline in his health from heart disease. Lee was a world-renowned social psychologist and one of the few social scientists voted into the prestigious National Academy of Science (USA). His engaging manner and abundant generosity toward Community Dialogue often hid his standing as one of social psychology’s leading figures. Lee communicated his ground-breaking insights with a clarity and directness that astonished his academic colleagues at Stanford and across the intellectual world, and his influence on the work of Community Dialogue cannot be overstated. We will miss him.
