Pardon?

Pardon?

Evaluation of the regulation to settle the legacy of the old Immigration Law (full text available only in Dutch)

Summary

During the second half of the Nineties, the Immigration and Naturalization Service (IND) and the immigrant chambers of the Hague court had started to fall behind in settling asylum procedures. After heated political and social debates, the decision was made to set up a pardon regulation to settle the legacy of the old immigration law. This regulation, which took effect on 15 June 2007, meant that residence permits would be officially granted to a clearly delimited group of asylum seekers. The goal of the present study is to determine whether execution of the Pardon Regulation has been consistent with the principles and preconditions formulated beforehand, and whether the results correspond to what was intended in advance.
