Report of Xenophobia and Radical nationalism in Netherlands (2017)

The main issue of concern regards the increasing tensions in Dutch society between various minority and majority groups which seem to enhance exclusion and discrimination. This was especially evident in the lead-up to the 2017 general election, with the Party for Freedom adopting rhetoric that, while primarily anti-Islamic, has also targeted groups based on ethnicity including those of a Moroccan background, with the party leader Geert Wilders referring to them as ‘scum’ in the lead-up to the 2017 election. This rising political rhetoric has been mirrored in Dutch society with an escalation in incidents of hate speech and crimes targeting ethnic and religious minorities.
