Abstract:The Dutch have a long tradition of hospitality towards ethnic immigrants.
In the nineties, however, quite dramatic changes have taken place among
the Dutch. The central question addressed in this contribution is: to what
extent do specific categories within the electorate favour ethnocentric
policies? This question is answered by deducing hypotheses that are tested
using recent data polled within the framework of the Dutch National
Election Studies. Our crucial conclusion is that a rather widespread support
for ethnocentric policies is present in contemporary Dutch society,
especially among manual labourers, self-employed and lowly educated
people, but also among young cohorts and among modal income categories.
