Debate: The Netherlands and the EU: time to take a stance

Democratie in Debat

What is the Netherlands' position in Europe? Political events like brexit have caused a reorientation on the EU. What are the priorities? Opposing views and interests of the Member States create several dilemmas for the Dutch government. How can the Netherlands benefit from the new balance of power? Is it time for the government to take a stance?

Bernard Steunenberg, Professor of Public Administration, Anne Mulder, member of Parliament (VVD), and Bert van Slooten, news correspondent in Brussels (NOS) discussed these topics on the 7th of March 2018. The debate was led by Kees Boonman.
