January 13, 2015 - Last weekend we received the sad and completely unexpected news that our colleague Joop van der Pligt, Professor of Social Psychology at the University of Amsterdam, passed away.
Joop was one of the initiators and founding members of the Kurt Lewin Institute. During the past years, he has actively supported the KLI and its activities, as a teacher, board member, and supervisor of many PhD students. He was a well-respected scientist and a special person, who played an important role in the field of Social Psychology.
We will miss him. Our thoughts are with his wife Danielle, his daughters Rascha and Charis, and others who were close to him.
On behalf of the General Board and Executive Committee of the Kurt Lewin Institute,
Naomi Ellemers, Linda Steg and Anouk Evers
