Netherlands

The Dutch government is continuing with its policy of time-limited and conditional support to rejected asylum seekers who cannot be removed, despite international criticism of its approach. The number of shelter spaces for asylum-seekers has been drastically reduced. Powers allowing authorities to impose administrative restrictions on people suspected of involvement in terrorism are now in force. The power to strip citizens with dual nationality, including children as young as 16, of their Dutch passport if they join or fight in a terrorist group overseas has begun to be used.
