Foundation for the Dutch Outside the Netherlands

We see good contacts with Dutch politicians as the best way to protect the interests of Dutch people abroad. For politicians, we are a resource and point of contact, for the Dutch outside the Netherlands we are the bridge to participation in politics in the Hague.

We deal with different issues. For example in the field of nationality, pension, Dutch education, passports and participation in elections, and Brexit.
