Policymaking related to immigration and integration. The Dutch Case.
The making of immigration and integration policies in the Netherlands has undergone notable changes over the past decades. While for a long time the Netherlands was celebrated for the success of its multiculturalist approach, nowadays there is an increasing emphasis on integration and adaptation to Dutch norms and values.
The authors first describe the development of subsystems of immigration (Section 2) and integration policy (Section 3). In these sections, they especially focus on two questions: 1) what the dominant pattern of governance has been and how it has evolved, and 2) who the actors in policymaking have been. Secondly, by comparing the internal dynamics of immigration and integration policies, and examining how both domains have become more and more integrated (Section 4), they analyse the dynamics of interaction between the two domains, as they have become strongly interrelated over the past decade. Thirdly, the authors analyse how macro-political developments such as depillarisation, reconstruction of the welfare state and changes in political culture have influenced the making of immigration and integration policies (Section 5). Finally, they draw some conclusions about the Dutch case (Section 6) by focusing on the following questions: what patterns of policy dynamics do we find? How do these compare to the patterns that were found in other countries? Is there a case for Dutch exceptionalism, or is there a convergent pattern of dynamics in immigration and integration policies in other countries as well?
