The XPat Journal guarantees high­ quality and timely editorial content, articles and interviews covering various topics from Dutch culture, legal and financial issues, international education, expat management, housing and health care. These topics are approached with the utmost of care from the perspective of the expatriate and are directed at newcomers as well as expats who have been living in the country for some years.
