Title: The Effect of Populist Radical Right Parties in the Netherlands on the VVD and PvdA
Author: Rijn, Nick van
Issue Date: 2017-08
Abstract: This paper seeks to add to the debate on how the views on the issues of integration and immigration have evolved in The Netherlands. Rather than focussing on one party in relation to a PRRP, this paper seeks to analyse the dynamics between a left-wing and a right-wing party (resp. PvdA and VVD), in order to show how this dynamic has influenced both parties’ programmes. Its objective is to show that the political and historical context between the above parties has been such a factor that it might be seen as a rebuttal of the verrechtsingsthesis.
