Integration and development trajectories: Latin American populations in The Netherlands: exploratory study
AbstractThis document gathers the main results of an exploratory study about the obstacles and possibilities of articulating the population of Latin American origin residing in The Netherlands to the receiving society. Two specific issues on the matter are presented: an overview of the types of organizations working with or for said populations; and information on the living conditions, potential and needs of the individuals. A review of the available statistical data from various government institutions is exposed and analysed and, on the basis of the results from a survey as well as several interviews, the situation of the target population is analyzed. The document contains a special section about the conditions of Â‘populations in special situationsÂ’ and, when required, pertinent recommendations on their needs and the possibilities to improve their conditions are made. The study demonstrates that the increases in number of Latin American migrants as well as the changes in the causes for migration and the profile of those who arrive to The Netherlands are issues which deserve attention both at a theoretical level as well as in the practical and policy formulation aspects.
