Obituary Caleb Reid Luc Wall

Caleb at his doctoral defense at ZEF in 2006.

May 10, 2022.  

We are sad to announce that our former colleague and ZEF doctoral researcher, Caleb Reid Luc Wall, passed away at the young age of 41 in Calgary, Canada, on April 9, 2022.

Caleb started and pursued his Ph.D. studies in Sociology at ZEF/ University of Bonn, from 2004 onwards within the joint ZEF-United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation’s (UNESCO) project on “Economic and Ecological Restructuring of Land and Water Use” in Urgench, Uzbekistan. He obtained his doctoral degree from the University of Bonn’s Faculty of Arts in 2006 for his thesis on Knowledge Management in Rural Uzbekistan: Peasant, Project and Post-Socialist perspectives in Khorezm, Uzbekistan, published by the University of Bonn.  For his doctoral sociological research, he spent around one year in Uzbekistan to conduct qualitative research in Uzbekistan’s rural and scientifically challenging environment.

He continued his professional career in the field of social and environmental impact assessment and health, safety, and environmental management. His last position was as a Senior Partner and Commercial Director at Environmental Resource Management in Calgary, Canada.

We remember Caleb as a very bright, driven, ambitious, and focused young student, starting his Ph.D. at the age of 23 and finishing it at 25. With his positive attitude and critical mindset, he was an absolute asset to our at the time relatively new doctoral studies program at ZEF. But, above all, Caleb was an outspoken sociable, communicative, open-minded, approachable, and committed young man.

Our thoughts are with his family and beloved ones for their immensely huge loss.
