Belgian lawyer, economist and politician who served as Prime Minster from 25 March 1935 to 23 November 1937. His government was forced to resign in the Spring of 1936 due to opposition from Rexism (a Belgian fascist party). He returned to power that Summer from June 1936 until November 1937.
The second Van Zeeland government carried through a progressive social reform program, introducing the 40-hour working week and measures against unemployment, which helped to ease the political tensions. Also during his second term, Belgium gave up its military alliance with France and reverted to its traditional "neutrality" policy, now dubbed "policy of independence".
