AbstractThe making of immigration and integration policies in the Netherlands has undergone notable changes over the past decades. The central questions of this paper are: how and why Dutch immigration and integration policies have developed into what they are today. And to what extent the development path of these policies accounts for either a degree of Dutch exceptionalism or a more general development applicable to other European countries as well. In this paper the authors focus not so much on the content of immigration and integration policies per se, but on the processes that have led to these policies. They focus on what actors were involved in policymaking processes at particular times, how the policymaking was institutionally organised and how the policymaking process may have been affected by developments in wider institutional and political contexts.
