Ce chapitre examine les circonstances dans lesquelles un mariage impliquant un conjoint migrant hors-EEA est désigné comme un simulacre de mariage afin que les droits de séjour soient refusés. Il analyse les problèmes de compréhension et de définition d’un faux mariage et fait valoir que les contrôles sur les mariages fictifs régulent souvent un plus large éventail de mariages que ceux conclus dans le seul but d'obtenir des droits de résidence.

This chapter investigates the circumstances in which a marriage involving a non- EEA migrant spouse is designated a sham marriage so that residence rights are refused. It analyses the problems of understanding and defining a sham marriage and argues that controls over sham marriages often regulate a much wider range of marriages than those entered for the sole purpose of obtaining residence rights.

Les politiques d'immigration et les politiques concernant l'intégration des minorités ethniques dans la société néerlandaise ont été sur l'ordre du jour politique néerlandais durant les dernières décennies. Récemment, cependant, ces débats ont reçu une nouvelle impulsion suite à la publication d'un article de journal par un membre éminent du parti travailliste néerlandais, Paul Scheffer. Dans ce chapitre, je replaceles développements récents dans les politiques de regroupement familial néerlandais sur le fond de ces débats actuels sur l'immigration, l'intégration et la culture néerlandaise traditionnelle - et en particulier, les normes de la famille néerlandaise.

Immigration policies and policies regarding the integration of ethnic minorities into Dutch society have been on the Dutch political agenda for the past decades. Recently, however, these debates received a new impulse from the publication of a newspaper article by a prominent member of the Dutch Labor party, Paul Scheffer. In this chapter I wish to place recent developments in Dutch family reunification policies against the background of these current debates on immigration, integration, and traditional Dutch culture - and in particular, Dutch family norms. 

While families all over the world enlist the help of family, friends, or paid day care for their children, the need to do so is especially strong for individual women (single or divorced) who work outside the home to earn a living. Women who migrate for work in another country, in search of better pay, may need to have children stay in the homes of others in the country of origin. That "good mothering" may take many forms was not initially recognized under Dutch immigration law. The approach in the Netherlands eventually brbought it into conflict with European human rights law and with the merging immigration law of the European Union (EU).

La Cour européenne des droits de l'Homme (Cour européenne) a récemment mis en évidence une décision importante concernant l'admission des enfants dans le cas de Sen c. Pays-Bas. Selon la façon dont on interprète cette décision, cela pourrait signifier un changement significatif par rapport aux décisions antérieures que la Cour européenne a prises sur cette question.

The European Court on Human Rights (European Court) has recently brought out an important decision regarding the admission of children in the case of Sen v. the Netherlands. Depending on how one interprets this decision, it could mean a significant shift from earlier decisions that the European Court has taken on this issue.
