Jos Mooij - I

In the untimely death of Jos Mooij on 28 February we have lost a conscientious and inspiring scholar whose work in the area of policy studies has touched many of us. I had known her for more than a decade since the days of her affiliation with the Centre for Economic and Social Studies (CESS), Hyderabad as a resident scholar. Jos’ writings on policy issues and on Andhra Pradesh politics which were brought out initially as part of the CESS and Overseas Development Institute (ODI) (London) Working Papers and later published in journals and as book chapters in fact constitute an important contribution. During her assignment in the CESS she edited Politics of Economic Reforms in India (Sage, 2005) which has received critical acclaim.

We had an opportunity to collaborate in the Governance and Policy Spaces (GAPS) project supported by the Ford Foundation during the 2000s. As a member of the GAPS collective, Jos played an active role in bringing a number of scholars – senior and junior – together through seminars and workshops we conducted as part of the GAPS project in the CESS. Even after going back to the Netherlands she took an active interest in the GAPS activities.
