Joram Jaron van Klaveren (born 23 January 1979) is a Dutch politician. As a member of the Party for Freedom he was an MP from 17 June 2010 until 21 March 2014. He subsequently was an independent until his term in office ended on 23 March 2017. He focused on matters of desegregation, employment-to-population ratio, egalitarianism and emancipation. From 24 March 2011 until 11 June 2014 he also was a member of the States-Provincial of Flevoland.[1]


Van Klaveren was born on 23 January 1979 in Amsterdam. He studied religious studies at VU University Amsterdam and has worked as an educator.

From March 2006 to June 2009 he was a member of the municipal council of Almere on behalf of the People's Party for Freedom and Democracy. In the 2010 general election, he was elected into the House of Representatives on behalf of the Party for Freedom. Beside that, he has also been a member of the States of Flevoland since the 2011 provincial elections.

On 21 March, 2014, Van Klaveren announced that he would leave the Party for Freedom, as he no longer agreed with the party's course. Controversial comments on the Moroccan minority in the Netherlands by party leader Geert Wilders after the 2014 local elections played part in this decision. Van Klaveren continued as an independent MP.[2] In May 2014, Joram van Klaveren, together with Louis Bontes and Johan Driessen, founded a new conservative political party called For the Netherlands (VNL).

His term in the House ended on 23 March 2017.[1]
