Welcome!

Hello! This is the home of the Dutch Politics in English podcast. If you’re new here, I recommend that you visit the About page, the Parliament page, and the Parties page to get an idea of the basics of Dutch politics. The Provinces is something you can visit later when you’d like to learn about politics at a more local level. Some time in the future, I will also add another page with the major cities, as council politics also echoes at other levels of government.

If you have questions, you can leave a comment in the relevant post, or contact me via dutchpoliticsinenglish @ gmail . com (remove spaces) or Twitter @dutchpoliticsEN. Thanks for visiting!

Forgot to mention that finding the Politico.EU magazine can be a bit tricky — the magazine is on the right-hand side of many pages, but there’s no central link I’ve found. So here’s one option, about one-third of the way down: http://www.politico.eu/section/politics/
