The Netherlands EU Presidency

In the first half of 2016 the Netherlands held the Presidency of the Council of the European Union.


The e-zine: Summing up the Presidency highlights some of the outcomes and results that were achieved during the Netherlands EU-presidency in the first half of 2016. Taken together, the articles, graphics and videos provide an incomplete but representative overview across the various policy areas.


Over 7,000 photos were taken during the Netherlands EU Presidency by photographers: Martijn Beekman and Valerie Kuypers. You will find their own personal collection of favorites (without further comment) in the e-zine: The Presidency in pictures.
