The Battle for the Netherlands

‘De Slag om Nederland’ is a weekly report looking at the way we shape our world and who’s responsible. Journalists Teun van de Keuken, Roland Duong, and Andrea Pol investigate the scandalous and the Kafkaesque world of urban planning and real estate development. Who are the people that mastermind enormous real estate projects nobody asked for? And why is ‘the market’ still building office buildings, while shocking stretches of m2 stand empty both in urban and suburban areas?

Part of the series is directed by Victor Vroegindeweij and produced by Appelbaum.

Every Monday evening at 20:20 on Nederland 2.
