Fake job applications sent to employers in The Hague show that people with a 'white' Dutch name are almost twice as likely to be invited for an interview as someone with a Moroccan-sounding name, according to research for the city council.
The government's socio-cultural think-tank SCP sent 504 job applications to 176 different vacancies using various Dutch, Moroccan and Hindustani names.
In 34% of cases, the applicants with the Dutch names were invited for an interview, compared with 23% of those with a Hindustani name and 19% of those with a Moroccan name.
