In this Bachelor-thesis, two decades of terrorism in the Netherlands will be compared. In the seventies, the Dutch government framed the numeral terrorist attacks (mainly by Moluccan terrorists) way differently than it did with Islamist terrorism in the zeroes. As it turned out, the government wasn't actively framing the terrorist attacks in the seventies, while it extensively did in the zeroes. The reasons behind this were various, the most influencial factor was the change in opportunity structures and a different position of the government within the framing process.
