THE HAGUE – The municipality of The Hague has downwardly adjusted its ambition to enrol 4,000 people for the integration courses to 1,300. The municipal authorities feel that the new rules for assimilation and integration turn out to be too complicated.

Much has changed for the municipalities since the Integration Act came into force on 1 January 2007. The ministry has now laid down the rules with which the candidates must comply while the municipalities themselves used to select the candidates for the courses.

The database provided by the student registration agency IB-Groep was also incorrect. ‘The database includes many people who are not at all entitled to take a course: some 28 percent fail to meet the requirements of the target group’.
