This chapter explains in detail the different policies that are used by the Dutch government to spatially concentrate or disperse ethnic minorities. It pays particular attention to those policies that were — and are — aimed at asylum seekers and refugees. The first section presents rough sketches of the national context within which dispersal policies need to be analysed and of the immigration trends and developments in the Netherlands. It describes the developments in Dutch minority policy and migration, and introduces the previous main dispersal and concentration policies of the Netherlands. An evaluation of these programmes is also included.
