On September 21, Prof Dr Sophie Body-Gendrot, a long-standing member of RC21 and inspiring colleague, beloved friend and excellent teacher for many in the RC21 community, has passed away after an illness. We have asked Professor Enzo Mingione (University of Milano-Bicocca), Professor Marisol García (University of Barcelona), Adrian Favell (University of Leeds), and Patrick Le Galès (Sciences Po) who knew Sophie Body-Gendrot for many years, to share their memories and appraisal of Sophie Body-Gendrot.
