HagueTalks @The Peace Palace
HagueTalks is a series of events during which innovative and refreshing perspectives on issues of peace and justice are presented by inspiring speakers. Their lectures are short, as the concept is to foster dialogues and discussions with the audience. By cooperating with the Carnegie Foundation, owner of the Peace Palace, a series of inspiring HagueTalks can be held at the Peace Palace: the international icon of peace and justice. In this way, the important perspectives are placed on a more global stage. Being the icon of peace and justice, the Peace Palace brings together different parties to facilitate dialogues that contribute to progress to a more peaceful world.
