During this difficult time, the Peace Palace is in great need of your support.
With your support, you will contribute to the work of the Carnegie Foundation in order to preserve the Peace Palace as a ‘Temple of Peace’ and help us to get through this crisis. Together we work towards a better world.
The Carnegie Foundation has had to adapt its working methods in order to respond to the current situation and give substance to recent government measures. Our Visitor Centre and the Peace Palace Library are open to the public again, of course in compliance with the current COVID-19 measures. Our projects and events have been postponed.
On the background, we continue to work hard and are busy making new arrangements in order to create and continue beautiful projects. We are looking forward to welcome you again!

About the Peace Palace
In the Peace Palace, we work daily to prevent and resolve conflicts by means of international law. The Peace Palace is home to the International Court of Justice, the only main body of the United Nations outside New York. The Peace Palace also houses the Permanent Court of Arbitration and Peace Palace Library, the most prestigious library in the field of international law and peace in the world. In addition, the palace is a national monument and European Cultural Heritage and contains art in the form of exceptional masterpieces and interior ensembles that all together tell the story of the Peace Palace: contributing to world peace.
