It is governed by a directly elected municipal council , a municipal executive board and a mayor. Since , the municipality of Amsterdam has gradually been divided into semi-autonomous boroughs , called stadsdelen or 'districts'.
Over time, a total of 15 boroughs were created. In May , under a major reform, the number of Amsterdam boroughs was reduced to eight: Amsterdam-Centrum covering the city centre including the canal belt , Amsterdam-Noord consisting of the neighbourhoods north of the IJ lake , Amsterdam-Oost in the east, Amsterdam-Zuid in the south, Amsterdam-West in the west, Amsterdam Nieuw-West in the far west, Amsterdam Zuidoost in the southeast, and Westpoort covering the Port of Amsterdam area.
As with all Dutch municipalities, Amsterdam is governed by a directly elected municipal council , a municipal executive board and a government appointed  mayor burgemeester.
The mayor is a member of the municipal executive board, but also has individual responsibilities in maintaining public order. On 27 June , Femke Halsema former member of House of Representatives for GroenLinks from to was appointed as the first woman to be Mayor of Amsterdam by the King's Commissioner of North Holland for a six-year term after being nominated by the Amsterdam municipal council and began serving a six-year term on 12 July She replaces Eberhard van der Laan Labour Party who was the Mayor of Amsterdam from until his death in October After the municipal council elections , a governing majority of D66 , VVD and SP was formed — the first coalition without the Labour Party since World War II.

Unlike most other Dutch municipalities, Amsterdam is subdivided into eight boroughs , called stadsdelen or 'districts', a system that was implemented gradually in the s to improve local governance.
The boroughs are responsible for many activities that had previously been run by the central city. In , the number of Amsterdam boroughs reached fifteen.
Fourteen of those had their own district council deelraad , elected by a popular vote. The fifteenth, Westpoort , covers the harbour of Amsterdam and had very few residents.
Therefore, it was governed by the central municipal council. Under the borough system, municipal decisions are made at borough level, except for those affairs pertaining to the whole city such as major infrastructure projects, which are the jurisdiction of the central municipal authorities.
In , the borough system was restructured, in which many smaller boroughs merged into larger boroughs. In , under a reform of the Dutch Municipalities Act, the Amsterdam boroughs lost much of their autonomous status, as their district councils were abolished.
The municipal council of Amsterdam voted to maintain the borough system by replacing the district councils with smaller, but still directly elected district committees bestuurscommissies.
Under a municipal ordinance, the new district committees were granted responsibilities through delegation of regulatory and executive powers by the central municipal council.
Colloquially, some areas within the municipality, such as the town of Durgerdam , may not be considered part of Amsterdam. Statistics Netherlands uses three other definitions of Amsterdam: metropolitan agglomeration Amsterdam Grootstedelijke Agglomeratie Amsterdam , not to be confused with Grootstedelijk Gebied Amsterdam , a synonym of Groot Amsterdam , Greater Amsterdam Groot Amsterdam , a COROP region and the urban region Amsterdam Stadsgewest Amsterdam.

The ceremony traditionally takes place at the Nieuwe Kerk on Dam Square , immediately after the former monarch has signed the act of abdication at the nearby Royal Palace of Amsterdam.
Normally, however, the Parliament sits in The Hague , the city which has historically been the seat of the Dutch government , the Dutch monarchy , and the Dutch supreme court.
Foreign embassies are also located in The Hague. The coat of arms of Amsterdam is composed of several historical elements.
First and centre are three St Andrew's crosses , aligned in a vertical band on the city's shield although Amsterdam's patron saint was Saint Nicholas.
These St Andrew's crosses can also be found on the city shields of neighbours Amstelveen and Ouder-Amstel. This part of the coat of arms is the basis of the flag of Amsterdam , flown by the city government, but also as civil ensign for ships registered in Amsterdam.
Second is the Imperial Crown of Austria. In , out of gratitude for services and loans, Maximilian I awarded Amsterdam the right to adorn its coat of arms with the king's crown.
Then, in , this was replaced with Maximilian's imperial crown when he was crowned Holy Roman Emperor. In the early years of the 17th century, Maximilian's crown in Amsterdam's coat of arms was again replaced, this time with the crown of Emperor Rudolph II , a crown that became the Imperial Crown of Austria.

Workers joined their wives in the plundering and the soldiers opened fire on them. Six people were killed and almost were wounded. During the interwar period, the city continued to expand, most notably to the west of the Jordaan district in the Frederik Hendrikbuurt and surrounding neighbourhoods.
In , a dike separating the Zuider Zee from the North Sea , the Afsluitdijk , was completed. The Zuider Zee was no more.

During World War II, German troops occupied the city. More than , Jews were deported, famously including Anne Frank , almost completely wiping out the Jewish community.

Amsterdam made a bid for the Olympic Games summer games but was unsuccessful. The games went to Helsinki. During the s, the number of foreign immigrants, primarily from Suriname, Turkey, and Morocco, grew strongly.

At the beginning of the millennium, social problems such as safety, ethnic discrimination, and segregation between religious and social groups began to develop.
Large social groups are people from Surinam , the Dutch Antilles , Morocco and Turkey. Amsterdam is characterized by its perceived social tolerance and diversity.
The social tolerance was endangered by the murder of Dutch film-maker Theo van Gogh on 2 November by a Mohamed Bouyeri , an Islamic fundamentalist.
The mayor of Amsterdam , Job Cohen , and his alderman for integration Ahmed Aboutaleb formulated a policy of "keeping things together" which involves social dialogue, tolerance and harsh measures against those who break the law.
The cultural revolution of the s and s made Amsterdam the magisch centrum magical center of Europe. The use of soft drugs was tolerated and this policy made the city a popular destination for hippies.
The period —, however, was described by Geert Mak as the "twenty years' urban war" twintigjarige stadsoorlog : an extended period of social struggle between the city's radical youth and its government.
The war started with the appearance of the local anarchist movement, Provo , so called because it liked to provoke authorities and bourgeois society with non-violent happenings and Dada -inspired absurdism.
The Amsterdam police struck back at Provo with force; Mak explains the extreme police violence by reference to events in the direct aftermath of World War II, when the resistance proved unable to replace the Nazi-friendly head of police with their own candidate, thus leaving police power in authoritarian hands.
After the disbanding of Provo, new movements arose, including the green Kabouters and the squatters' movement.
The latter raised the question of "who owns the city" and took direct action to show their stance on this issue, opposing speculators ' claims to land in the face of housing deficits.
Tensions escalated to the point where the army was called in to clear streets of barricades and in , street fights took place in the center between police and large numbers of squatters and their sympathizers, at the very moment that Queen Beatrix 's coronation was taking place inside the New Church on Dam square - see Amsterdam coronation riots for more.
The loss of public sympathy stemming from this event eventually led to the downfall of the squatter movement, and by the mids it was effectively marginalized.

Since , renewed focus has been given to urban regeneration and renewal, especially to areas directly bordering the city center such as Frederik Hendrikbuurt.
This urban renewal and expansion of the traditional center of the city is part of the Structural Vision Amsterdam initiative.
