Chapter Summary

Stichting Nederlandse Vrijwilligers (SNV) had its roots in both private and state initiatives, and throughout its history has had an ambivalent relationship with the Dutch state. Several attempts were made to resolve the complex administrative and organisational ties between the Ministry and SNV and by the 1980s SNV had become a quango (a quasi NGO). The larger contours and the main historical lines of SNV as an organisation relate it to the Dutch political context and to the history of international development. Throughout most of its history, SNV has been a relatively decentralised organisation: many decisions were taken in its country offices rather than at Head Office in The Hague. In the case of SNV and with its history of relative decentralisation, each country in which SNV had activities reveals a particular history and profile, often deeply embedded in the local political and socio-cultural context.

Keywords: decentralised organisation; Dutch political context; Hague; local political; socio-cultural context; Stichting Nederlandse Vrijwilligers (SNV)
