Holland Handbook / 2015-2016




Stephanie Dijkstra

This richly illustrated handbook offers essential information for expatriates on all aspects of living and working in the Netherlands such as: permits and visa, career, housing, finance, international education, fiscal and legal issues, health care, telecommunications and insurances. The reader can also find more general information on the Dutch culture and habits, tourist information, learning the language, international clubs, etc. All these subjects are approached from the perspective of the expatriate - both newcomers and expats who have been living in the Netherlands for some time. This and many useful addresses, phone numbers and websites make The Holland Handbook an indispensable guide for the employee expat, the expat's partner who does not have a paid or volunteer job (yet), foreign entrepreneurs, the many foreign students who have come to the Netherlands to train or study and professionals who want to keep abreast of the latest developments in expat affairs.

The low sky

The low sky




Han van der Horst

The Low sky - The book that makes the Netherlands familiar Doe maar gewoon dan doe je gek genoeg - Act normally, that's crazy enough Nine out of ten people in the Netherlands will quote this well-worn saying if asked to come up with a basic trait of the Dutch character. Expatriates who have been here for a while see it differently. For them, Dutch society is a weird and wonderful maze full of unpredictable people. At times Dutch people will ignore you politely; at others they will go out of the way to help you. You will get into trouble with the authorities for putting up a fence without permission but, in the late evenings, many family television channels broadcast pornography and advertisements for telephone sex into your living room. Even your best friends reach for their diaries to make a dinner date, because you don't just drop by without being invited. And when you buy them a present they will open it in front of you without batting an eyelid. A country and a people full of paradoxes. Or is there some kind of system behind it all? Han van der Horst paints a picture of Dutch society and the Dutch psyche that will help expatriates to understand the country they are living in and to function properly at work and in their free time. The Low Sky - Understanding the Dutch is the best guide to the Netherlands and its people. This latest edition has been completely reviewed and updated to do justice to the major social changes that have affected Dutch society in recent years.

The end of privacy

The end of privacy




Adjiedj Bakas

Collectively, the 400 million Europeans have already left 50 billion online internet tracks. Linking together all of that different data and using it to produce a business model is becoming one of the big trends of the 21st century. Soon there will be no more secrets. Coma profiles But the flip-side of this advancement is becoming evident. Technology has transcended the human dimension. People do not realise that their PC, telephone, refrigerator, pacemaker and car talk to one another about their owners. Neighbourhood quarrels are now thrashed out on social networking sites and almost no-one has laid down rules for what will happen to their Facebook profile, Hotmail account or the rest of their digital inheritance should they die unexpectedly. This results in old social media profiles becoming coma profiles or digital orphans. Come back of paper Knowledge is power, and that is since time immemorial. But in the near future companies will obtain more knowledge than ever before about other companies and consumers. Citizens will be able to keep better track of one another's comings and goings. The paper-based back-up will make a come-back and internet security will become an immense growth market. A brilliant 17-year-old hacker will soon earn more than a 50-year-old top banker. Soon, using contact lenses, the appearance of your loved one will change every hour. The digital touter is on the horizon, and digital arrest too. There will be more ID fraud and that will have an impact on peoples confidence in one another and in organisations and authorities. Now that more than 50% of crime is internet-related, there should no longer be police on the streets but more police on the internet. How will we deal with all of that? Trendwatcher Adjiedj Bakas made a tour of the security, HR and IT industries and wrote an inspiring and challenging book about internet security and digital identity in the coming decades. References Adjiedj Bakas is an original and innovative thinker. Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte When I hear Adjiedj Bakas read, I always immediately see the speck on the horizon. My eyes start to shine and I get dimples in my cheeks, because he uses so much humour in his work. He always makes me pause for thought. Ivo Opstelten, Dutch Minister of Security & Justice    This book makes a significant contribution to the continuing social debate about the importance of privacy in the information society.
