Suriname gained its independence from the Netherlands on 25 November 1975. The two countries signed a treaty obliging the Netherlands provide Suriname development assistance as a way of helping the latter country achieve economic independence. Following the military coup led by Desi Bouterse in 1980, relations between the two countries came under pressure. Dutch and Surinamese media played an important role in public opinion on internal political developments in Suriname and the complicated political and administrative relations between the Netherlands and Suriname. Ellen de Vries studies the role played by the media in the post-colonial relations between the two nations in the 1980-1992 period.
