De Lage Landen een mensenleven later

Ons Erfdeel Vzw, April 2020

1945 was een nulpunt van de wereld waarin we nu leven. Maar veel van wat na het einde van de Tweede Wereldoorlog in de steigers werd gezet, ligt nu, een mensenleven later, onder vuur. Waar staan de Lage Landen, 75 jaar na WOII, en welke richting gaan ze uit? Nulpunt 1945 is een rijke verzameling van prikkelende verhalen, scherpe analyses en verrassende beschouwingen.

‘Dissenting Voices:

Challenging the Colonial System’

Brill, May 2018

This project discusses critical voices that have challenged the dominant colonial narrative in the context of the Dutch East Indies/Indonesia. The project combines journalistic and academic writing with musical performance and film making to amplify these voices and to analyse why they have long been ignored in the public and academic debate.

By Anne-Lot Hoek (Research Journalist), and Maartje Janse (Historian) with contributions from Ernst Jansz (Musician & Writer) and Sjoerd Sijsma (Film Maker & Photographer)

Exploring the Dutch Empire

Agents, Networks and Institutions


Bloomsbury, May 2015

This volume surveys the Dutch participation in, and contribution to, the process of globalization. At the same time, it reassesses the various ways Dutchmen fashioned themselves following the encounter and in the light of increasing dialogue with other societies across the world. As such, Exploring the Dutch Empire offers a new insight into the macro and micro worlds of the global Dutchman in Asia, Africa and the Americas.

Edited by Catia Antunes and Jos Gommans. Various articles by various authors

From Idealism to Realism:

a social history of the Dutch in Zambia 1965-2013

African Studies Center, Leiden 2014

After almost fifty years of Dutch-Zambian relationships, the Royal Netherlands Embassy in Lusaka closed its doors in 2013. Earlier, the development cooperation with this African country was ended. A lively Dutch community of entrepreneurs and (former) development workers stay behind.


How do they and also Zambians look back on the Dutch involvement? Did the Dutch presence mean anything substantial from the perspectives of those involved? And what does this legacy hold for future connections? The personal perspective of people working in or with the development process that is used in this publication gives a unique insight in the history of Dutch presence in Zambia.

Bricks, Mortar and Capacity Building

A Socio-Cultural History of Snv Netherlands Development Organisation

Brill, Augustus 2010

The history of development cooperation has attracted very little research to date. This volume offers an innovative interpretation by considering the history of SNV Netherlands Development Organisation, which has been in existence for over forty years now. Through SNV's history, an analysis emerges of the role of the Netherlands in development cooperation and the attitudes of Dutch society towards it over the last fifty years as well as the changing ideas, practices and policies in development work more generally. The views and expectations of (former) SNV staff and those of local participants who were ultimately to benefit from the development activities were the focus of this historical research. This has resulted in a socio-cultural history 'from below' rather than a dry description of the organisation's administrative changes and formal bureaucratic structures.
