Research output: Chapter in book/volumeChapterScientificpeer-review


This chapter is part of a book which investigates the different ways in which politicians have ended their careers. I focus on the impact of age in the life and career of politicians and use the life of dr. Hilda Verwey-Jonker as a case study. Because she was amongst others a pionieer, promoting the interests of older people, it is relevant to reflect on the effect of ageing in precisely her life.
