Immigration and diversity: they are the biggest, hottest, most painful issues in the Netherlands. America is the land of diversity. What is the secret to America’s approach? It’s a tiny thing: the hyphen (“koppelteken”).

Everyone in the U.S. has a dual identity: Mexican-American, Italian-American, Jewish-American, African-American…America tells newcomers: “Become American, join us…but don’t lose your origins!”

It has taken a few hundred years, and it has flaws, but American diversity seems to work. The purpose of “Hyphen-Nation” is to pose this question: Can the American diversity format work in the Netherlands?
