Ter nagedachtenis aan Flip Lindo

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr. Flip Lindo, a distinguished anthropologist, scholar, educator, and cofounder of our NIA winter school “Migration in the Margins of Europe” who passed away on Friday 5 January.
Flip Lindo took his BA in Sociology and his MA in Anthropology at the University of Amsterdam (1981). He received his PhD in the Social Sciences from Utrecht University (1996) and he worked as a Senior Research Fellow and Lecturer in the Department of Sociology and Anthropology of the University of Amsterdam (UvA), until his retirement in 2013. He demonstrated an unwavering commitment to the research of migration and throughout his career, he dedicated himself to research, teaching and mentoring, leaving an indelible mark on the academic community and on our NIA winter school young scholars.
At the NIA he contributed significantly to the development of research on migration and he was widely recognized for his expertise in Dutch and Greek sociology and anthropology, as well as his research on immigrant youth, interethnic relations, and processes/discourses of inclusion and exclusion in Greece and The Netherlands.
Apart from his academic pursuits, Flip Lindo volunteered until recently for the Dutch Council of Refugees (VluchtelingenWerk), helping refugee families who settled in his home municipality and he will be remembered for his great sense of humor, kindness, optimism and modesty. Colleagues and students alike cherished under his guidance, mentorship, and the positive impact he had on their lives. Flip Lindo is survived by his son and daughter and he will be deeply missed by all his friends, colleagues, and students.
