SCP and WRR: ‘Uncomfortable’ opposition across the 'educational divide'

There is a sociocultural opposition in the Netherlands between people with high and low education levels. This is expressed politically in highly divergent opinions on sensitive issues such as migrants, the EU and politics in general. It also manifests itself in social distance. The two groups live in separate social networks and have different cultural tastes. The opposition between those with a low and high education level can lead to a sense of discomfiture, and there is a real risk of the two groups shunning each other.
