In the run-up to the Dutch general elections on 17 March, the Clingendael Institute has compared the views on foreign affairs of the 13 largest parties, as set out in their manifestos.

How ambitious are the political parties in their foreign and security policy? What do they think of the European Union, migration, trade agreements, defence and development cooperation? What points do they emphasise? Which parties have more or less similar views? Do the manifestos match the views of their constituencies? And which coalitions would stand a chance based on their views of foreign affairs?
