Chapter Summary

The Stichting Nederlandse Vrijwilligers (SNV) was formally founded on 16 July 1965. The author provides keen insight into the history of SNV in The Hague, with all its political ins and outs, its relationship with the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, tensions between the private JVC factions and the state part of SNV, SNV's image in the Dutch press, and its major policy changes. This chapter provides a socio-cultural history of SNV and by using the term 'history' we want to make it clear that the focus is on the interpretation of change and continuity. The views presented in this chapter, therefore do not always explain the background of SNV policies but instead focus on how changes and decisions were received by the people who had to implement or deal with them. This chapter presents an overview of how the other chapters of the book are organised.
