The Library will be closed until further notice due to the extended national lockdown in the Netherlands.
All online resources will be available during confinement and our programs will run without interruption, with the exception of our Interlibrary Loan (ILL) services.
If you need to contact the Services Desk or you would like to speak to a Librarian, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. As soon as we are legally able, we will gradually reopen the Library.
For the latest information, please follow our social media channels and sign up for the Library Newsletter.

We publish this newsletter today because July 17th marks International Criminal Justice Day, a day that commemorates the anniversary of the adoption of the Rome Statute, the founding treaty of the International Criminal Court (ICC). Since 2014, the Peace Palace Library and The Hague Academy have organized small events to mark this day and to bring attention to the subject of International Criminal Law among the Academy Students.
