The politics of Curaçao reflect a nation that has experienced conflict between its major immigrant groups. One represents immigrants from the Netherlands, now a small minority, the other descendants of African slaves, well into the majority.


Prostitution is legal. A large open-air brothel called "Le Mirage" or "Campo Alegre" operates near the airport since the 1940s. Curaçao monitors, contains and regulates the industry. The government states that the workers in these establishments are thereby given a safe environment and access to medical practitioners.[1]
