[Article in Dutch] "In the last decade, the Netherlands has experienced a conservative backlash against the progressive consensus emenating from the sixties and seventies. A backlash, however, that is paradoxical and ambiguous in its nature. On the basis of Pim Fortuyn’s writing I argue that the Dutch New Right has developed a new, mutated form of conservatism - inspired on American neoconservatism - that distinguishes itself by the incorporation of important progressive attainments: women’s rights, gay rights, individualism and secularism. While on other terrains – law & order, the environment, culture, internationalism, the work ethic - the former progressive consensus is actively contested and undermined. To qualify the content of this new conservative politics, I propose to use the term postprogressive politics."
