Evaluation of the naturalisation ceremony

Evaluation of the naturalisation ceremony

(full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

Since 1 january 2006, all municipalities in the Netherlands are obliged to organise a naturalisation ceremony at least once a year. During this ceremony, new Dutch citizens are awarded the decision on their request for acquiring the Dutch nationality. The two central research questions were:

  1. How did the municipalities implement the legislation relating to the naturalisation ceremony in practice?
  2. How do applicants for naturalisation or option of non-Western origin perceive the naturalisation ceremony, and is it possible to say something about a possible change in their connectedness with the Netherlands due to their attendance at the ceremony?
