VVD is the liberal party of the Netherlands and currently the biggest in parliament and the leading party in government. The party committee for Foreign Affairs, Development Co-operation and International Trade provides policy support for the members of parliament, the senate and the European parliament. From December 2007 till November 2012 I served as secretary of the committee and am now a member specializing in the trend of peoples and tribes to strive for self determination which is the main source of tensions and violent conflicts around the world today. Good foreign policy is managing the inevitable.
