Abstract

The security and defence policy of the Netherlands is in transition. The financial crisis of the last years has already led to cuts in the defence budget of up to one billion Euros. The cutbacks will undoubtedly increase further unless the economy recovers. While an impact on strategic culture can be expected, for the moment it remains unclear in which direction it would develop. NATO and in particular transatlantic relations will remain important, while at the same time the Dutch orientation in Europe will expand towards security and probably also defence.
