The National Counterterrorism Strategy for 2022-2026

The possibility of terrorist violence in the Netherlands will remain in the years ahead, with a threat being posed by both jihadism and right-wing terrorism. To protect national security and democratic rule of law, the Netherlands has adopted a sustainable, robust and flexible approach to terrorism. A wide range of partners - the intelligence and security services, police, investigation services, judicial system, municipalities, local professionals and many others - are all committed to preventing terrorist violence. The perpetrators of terrorist offences are investigated, prosecuted and punished and the social impact of violence is limited as much as possible.
