Main theme: New beginnings for migrants

This spring, ACCESS Magazine is tackling the topic of migration as a common denominator within the international community in the Netherlands.

Most internationals have moved here by choice, yet many have moved for harsher, more unfortunate reasons, with little idea of what lies ahead.

See a thorough update on the status of these migrants, including stories from those with first-hand experience, and examples of promising civic programmes.

Other topics that will be addressed include the merits and annoyances of the Dutch street organ, a presentation on the province of Zeeland, a new option for group therapy in English and the winners of the first Our View photo contest, with the theme "movement".


ACCESS is a not-for-profit organisation that supports the international community in the Netherlands.

It is staffed by an enthusiastic team of around 115 volunteers from more than 35 countries, all of whom are trained to provide comprehensive information, advice and support, and who are empathetic to the experience of internationals.
