"The Dutch naturalisation policy between 1815 and 1998 can roughly be divided into three periods. The first period is the period before the First World War. In that period little interest in naturalisation by aliens went hand in hand with a government policy aimed at the naturalisation of a few aliens. The second period runs from the First World War to the beginning of the fifties. In this period the increased interest in naturalisation by aliens caused a restrictive naturalisation policy. The third period is from the early fifties till now. In this period the interest in naturalisation by aliens further increased and the naturalisation policy gradually was liberalised."
