Despite the fact that the Netherlands is portrayed as liberal and tolerant, discrimination is still present in the country. Results of research conducted by Eurostat and OECD and published in the Volkskrant indicated that the Netherlands ranks among the highest countries where non-EU citizens in search of job opportunities experience difficulties. Statistics also indicate that the Netherlands is only second to Sweden among EU countries with unemployed non-EU citizens. However, Sweden accepts three times more non-EU citizens than the Netherlands. The number of allochtonen in full-time employment is the Netherlands is only 49,5%. Allochtonen is a term used in the Netherlands to refer to foreigners with no western background. The study also indicated that posterities of Turks, Moroccans, Surinam, and people of the Dutch Antilles have a higher chance of being unemployed than Dutch natives.
