The second follow‐up study on the perception of the citizens of the Dutch Caribbean of the changes caused by the changed constitutional structure within the Kingdom.

The second follow‐up study on the perception of the citizens of the Dutch Caribbean of the changes caused by the changed constitutional structure within the Kingdom.

The amended constitutional relations within the Kingdom have resulted in many changes on the three islands of the Dutch Caribbean. Since October 10, 2010 (’10‐10‐10’) the Dutch National Government, through its Ministries, under the name “Rijksdienst Caribisch Nederland” (RCN), provides a multitude of services to the citizens.

How do citizens on the islands of Bonaire, St. Eustatius and Saba experience these changes since October 10, 2010 (“10‐10‐10”), how do they assess the services provided by the National Government, and has the service improved or deteriorated in the past years?

The islands have been part of the Netherlands for three years now. In previous years, the first and second perception studies were conducted; now after three years the third perception study is conducted. What has changed, improved or worsened compared to 10‐10‐10? And during last year, have things improved or worsened with the services provided by the National Government?

The perception study answers the question: ”how do the citizens of the Dutch Caribbean experience the changes due to the amended constitutional changes within the Kingdom and how has the service of the National Government Services evolved?”
