Modernising Dutch diplomacy; Progress report by the Advisory Committee on Modernising the Diplomatic Service

In spring 2013 the Minister of Foreign Affairs requested the Advisory Committee on Modernising the Diplomatic Service to draw up a progress report. The report, which outlines the Committee’s initial findings since it was established on 9 March 2012,1 is intended as input into reflections on the reform of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Committee emphasises that it will elaborate on its findings and check them in dialogue with stakeholders within and outside the Ministry, and in the light of further study.
