The Netherlands is a former colonial power and at one time, in the seventeenth century, dominated world trade with ruthless methods. It still is a significant trading hub. Because of their small size and preference for sea-travel the Dutch mostly utilized strategic positions at harbours or straits unlike others empires. A survey published in 2020 showed that the Dutch were more positive about the Dutch empire than any other former colonial power.
In June 2005, the Netherlands became the 4th country to publish an official report on Operation Gladio in the country. Entitled "De Nederlandse stay behind - Organisatie in de koude oorlog (1945 - 1992) The PIVOT-Report No. 166", it was a joint publication of the Dutch Ministry of General Affairs, the Ministry of Defence & National Archives.
The Dutch constitution gives the government extensive powers over war and peace. Formally, parliament has no say in the decision about military participation or the right to be informed in advance. Article 100 of the Constitution states:
1. The Government shall inform the States General in advance if the
armed forces are to be deployed or made available to maintain or promote
the international legal order. This shall include the provision
of humanitarian aid in the event of armed conflict.
2. The provisions of paragraph 1 shall not apply if compelling reasons exist to prevent the provision of information in advance. In this event, information shall be supplied as soon as possible.
