Geschiedenis (History)[edit | edit source]

In 1839, the Treaty of London marked a significant moment for the Netherlands as it recognized Belgian independence, bringing an end to the Belgian Revolution. This period saw constitutional reforms in 1848, ushering in parliamentary democracy and expanding civil liberties within the country. Meanwhile, Dutch colonial expansion continued, particularly in the Dutch East Indies.

Between 1870 and 1914, the Netherlands underwent rapid industrialization, with sectors like shipping, trade, and finance flourishing. The nation also expanded its territories in the Caribbean, acquiring Suriname and the Netherlands Antilles. However, the outbreak of World War I in 1914 brought economic challenges, despite the Netherlands maintaining neutrality throughout the conflict.

During World War II, from 1940 to 1945, the Netherlands was invaded and occupied by Nazi Germany, leading to a period of resistance and eventual liberation by Allied forces. Following the war, the process of decolonization gained momentum, with the Netherlands granting independence to its remaining colonies.

In the latter half of the 20th century, the Netherlands experienced significant economic growth and became known for his progressive social policies. Joining the European Economic Community (EEC) in 1957, the Netherlands was one of the founding members, signaling its commitment to European integration. The turn of the century saw continued prosperity and technological advancement, with the Netherlands leading the way in areas such as renewable energy, water management, and agriculture.
