 9,95

In his Fortunate Connections manifesto, Mr. Keij seeks to build a bridge between the politicians in The Hague and the sizable Dutch electorate abroad. The two foremost questions are: what added value do the (former) Dutch nationals abroad bring to The Netherlands itself, and how do other European countries deal politically with their citizens abroad? Based on his research of extensive resources, Mr. Keij offers suggestions and recommendations directed at the political parties in The Hague.

Product Description

In 2011, Eelco Keij (1977), a resident of New York, cranked up the debate on dual citizenship with the goal of fighting any further restrictions on this option for Dutch nationals abroad.

This resulted in an online petition that, for the first time, packed a digital punch delivered by Dutch nationals abroad and aimed at the government in The Hague. This issue, which to this day continues to be extremely disadvantageous for both present and former Dutch nationals abroad, formed the overture for a broader inventory of other issues.

Native Brabander Eelco Keij lives with his American wife and his Dutch-American children in West Harlem, New York. In 2011, he became a dual citizen, with a Dutch and an American passport. In daily life, he is an entrepreneur and a fundraising strategist.
