It is with great sadness I hear of the passing of my colleague Clive Archer, the outstanding specialist of North European international security. Professor Archer was unique in his knowledge and insight, exacting in the standards he set and the performance he demanded. What he offered us, his Nordic colleagues, was an unparallelled outside perspective on Nordic affairs. He contributed his insights not only through his own authorship, but through his co-authorship of books and articles with Nordic colleagues, and through his participation in professional activities at Nordic universities and research institutes. His warm personality and unassuming manner made him a welcome guest across the Northern region. I had the privilege of following his path from the vantage points of the University of Oslo, Department of Political Science in the 1980s, the Norwegian Institute of International Affairs in the 1990s and the Swedish Institute of International Affairs in the 2000s. He apparently had links everywhere. I believe I voice the opinion of all his Nordic colleagues when I say Clive Archer will be missed by us all. Peace be with him.

Condolences to his family.

As my PhD supervisor and mentor, Clive played a significant part in the path I took, both academically and personally. He opened doors for me, and most of my fondest memories form my time as a young researcher have him at the core. He provided support, comfort, guidance, leadership, critique and opportunity.
I had the pleasure of taking the phone call from the Norwegian Embassy in London, informing him of his award from the Norwegian government, as mentioned in the obituary. I remember calling him at home, right after I had finished the call with the Embassy. He thought I was joking, winding him up!

He truly was a great man, a gentle man, and a giant of an academic.

Rest in peace, Clive. Best wishes to Liz and Tom.

To the Archer family and friends,

Please accept my sincerest condolences and may God bless all of you at this time of sorrow...

I was saddened to hear of Professor Clive's passing recently. He was an extraordinary person, with fine qualities, erudite, and he worked tirelessly and was a good friend to all. He was of an incredible and positive influence and had a zest for life off the field of academic research interests too. There is no doubt that there are many in the community who will mourn deeply his passing as his was a life of service,love, compassion and excellence.

Dear Clive, You are in our thoughts and prayers,thank you for being so supportive and being a friend for so many years. You fought a brave battle. Rest in peace.

With deepest sympathy
