Abstract

What has happened to the Netherlands, a country once often admiringly described abroad as an oasis of tolerance? Did its policy on minorities create a segregated society? Numerous researchers (Koopmans & Statham 2000; Koopmans 2002; Ireland 2004; Joppke 2004: 248; Koopmans et al. 2005; Sniderman & Hagendoorn 2006: 15–20) have argued that this is the case. In their view, ‘multicultural’ policies promoting group rights encouraged disparate ethnic and religious identities, eventually leading to mutual exclusion and intolerance.
