Migration Policy as a Learning Process - How the Netherlands Deals with Immigrants
Hendrik M. Vroom
Issues related to migration constitute one of the main political problems in the Netherlands.

Due to the low birth rate of the Dutch, economic forecasts predict a large number of job vacancies in the near future. Thus, the Netherlands require immigrants also for the purpose of maintaining the social benefit systems.
