Defense for Children: Netherlands Violates International Agreements

In 2014, the Netherlands was condemned by the European Court for Human Rights in a case where it had not given a woman from Surinam a permit to stay in the Netherlands in order to be able to take care of her children, who have Dutch nationality.  The organization Defense for Children says that there are probably thousands of similar cases where the Netherlands doesn’t give residence permits to foreign parents of Dutch children in the Netherlands.  This is a violation of international agreements.
