International support for a new multilateral treaty banning nuclear weapons is increasing. What implications would such a treaty have for the Netherlands? This policy brief describes the legal and political context of such a treaty and examines the implications of two scenarios: one in which the Netherlands will join such a treaty, and one in which it will remain outside such a treaty. Without discussing the feasibility of such a treaty or the advisability for the Netherlands to join or not, it concludes that any decision in this regard will be a political choice rather than a clear-cut best option.
