In the 1930s and during the first year after the Nazi invasion of the Netherlands in May 1940, the basic principles of Salazar's authoritarian Estado Novo were widely discussed and cheered in the Netherlands. Influential Dutch newspapers featured articles about the 'lessons' for Dutch politics and society that could be drawn from Portuguese corporatism. This chapter focuses on the idea that the enthusiasm in the Netherlands for Salazar's system was largely based on the encounter between perceptions of Salazar, images of Portugal and self-images of the Netherlands.
