Titel: The Queen, the populists and the others
Sub titel: New Dutch politics explained to foreigners
Outsiders look with surprise to the climate change in the Netherlands. As well as the Dutch themselves. They loved to see their country as a multi-cultural paradise. But today populists are dominating politics and media. Much to the chagrin of the old political elite, including the progressive Head of State, Queen Beatrix. Geert Wilders now even backs a new minority government. In view of all this, this booklet aims at explaining the Dutch governmental system, especially during the formation of a new government. How democratic is this process? How to explain the important role of the Queen within these political structures? Do we stare here in a democratic gap?
