Abstract

This paper, written in the Dutch language, provides a brief analysis of the legal options in the context of EU law available after the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon to the overseas territories of the EU Member States. The emphasis is put on two fundamental options: the status of an Outermost Region and that of an Overseas Country or Territory Associated with the EU. The paper draws on the example of the potential application of these statuses in EU law to the overseas territories of the Kingdom of the Netherlands following the splitting up of the Federation of the Netherlands Antilles.
