Over four days, participants explored how The Hague’s approach to international justice and peace impacts national debates on human rights issues in the Netherlands and throughout the Western world. The program addressed how institutions in The Hague, including the International Criminal Courts, International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, International Court of Justice, impact some of the most important historical and contemporary international disputes and violations of the rule of law.

The conference featured keynotes, workshops and discussions led by Dutch and international experts, activists and Humanity in Action Senior Fellows. Speakers illuminated the city’s approach to international peace, justice and reconciliation as these forces intersect with public service, politics, academia, activism, business and other critical fields.

The International Conference also featured site visits within The Hague, the annual Senior Fellow Reunion Dinner, skill building workshops and networking events for Humanity in Action's international community.
