In Memoriam: Jos Mooij

Jos Mooij, associate professor and deputy rector for educational affairs at the International Institute of Social Studies (ISS), the Hague, Holland, breathed her last on 28 February 2013 very prematurely. Her research was in the areas of policy processes and the politics of policies and most of her research focused on various social policies in India. She worked on food, health and education in India. Jos always posed questions that were not only academically fascinating, but also politically relevant. She not only aimed at understanding the reproduction of social inequalities in Indian society but her work also challenged India’s authority and power structures. In India, she will be terribly missed as a special friend and gifted collaborator. Her enormous impact here – personally as well academically – is unmistaken.

We, the present writers, who have come to know each other through Jos, consider ourselves really privileged to have worked with her and to have been inspirited by her wisdom and wit.
