Netherlands' new coalition proposes changes in Dutch immigration

On 16 May 2024, the newly formed Dutch coalition of four political parties published an accord outlining general policy guidelines for a soon-to-be-formed cabinet. The accord recommends several changes in the Netherlands’ immigration regulations. After the general elections in the Netherlands in November 2023, four political parties began discussions to form a coalition, which was officially formalized earlier in May 2024. In a departure from the normal course, the coalition published an accord in mid-May 2024 recommending a general policy outline instead of specific policy proposals. Among other suggestions, the accord proposes restrictions on labor migration. The goal is for the new, upcoming cabinet to design specific policies that will align with the general guidelines in the accord.
