The Hague Institute for Global Justice

This newly established Institute aims to become an independent centre of expertise, based in The Hague, the city that has been a symbol of peace and justice for more than a century. The Institute is dedicated to the promotion of knowledge of law and justice as the basis of and in relationship to peace, security and social and economic development.
