The International Community Advisory Panel (ICAP) is an initiative set up by long-standing members of the Dutch international community to bridge the gap between expats and internationals and the government’s civic services. ICAP conducts several surveys per year, aimed at raising the international community’s voice and providing the local government with advice based on real experiences had by internationals.

Now, ICAP is turning its attention to the upcoming local elections, in which citizens and residents of the Netherlands will vote for around 350 new local councils.
Through this confidential survey, ICAP hopes to identify the main issues the expat community is facing and find out which parties are most likely to win the expat vote.
