The Migration and Development Project in the Netherlands is part of the Migration and Development: A World in Motion project. This project is implemented by the Maastricht Graduate School of Governance and financed by the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The main objectives of this Netherlands-based research are: to understand the background characteristics of different types of migrants (e.g. family migrants, labour migrants, refugees, and students) through the example of Moroccan, Afghan, Ethiopian and Burundian migrants in the Netherlands; learn about their experiences as migrants; and examine their homeland engagement and orientation toward family and friends in their countries of origin. The Netherlands Country Report seeks to answer these questions on a descriptive level based on the household surveys conducted among first-generation migrant households. The report includes an exhaustive summary of the data collected in the Netherlands by making the comparison between Afghan, Burundian, Ethiopian and Moroccan households.
