Laten wij voor onze kinderen een leven opbouwen vol liefde en vriendschap opdat zij dit nooit hoeven mee te maken. Dat is de kern van het verhaal waarmee Admira Suljagic, gevlucht uit Srebrenica, de avond opent. Zij wenst dat niemand ooit hoeft mee te maken wat zij heeft meegemaakt.
‘Peace and Justice' guided tour
In addition to the government, the royal household, Parliament and the ministries, The Hague is also home to many international organisations that are engaged with international law and work to maintain peace. Not surprising, as The Hague is also known in Dutch as the ‘City of Peace and Justice'.
Interested in learning more about these organisations? Then take the ProDemos Peace and Justice tour, which leaves from Hofweg 1 in the reception area of the Visitor Centre, beside café DuDok.
Choose from the following tours:
Weekday tour (available Tuesday-Friday) (» 6h)
ProDemos – International Criminal Court – Humanity House – Yugoslavia Tribunal
Weekend tour (available Saturdays and Sundays) (» 5h)
ProDemos – Humanity House – Peace Palace
Schools tour* (available Mondays) (» 5h)
ProDemos – Peace Palace – Yugoslavia Tribunal
* Educational institutions only
Tours are given by experienced ProDemos experts for groups that consist of at least ten participants. The tours are available in English. Because the organisations are not within walking distance of one another, the tour is run using bicycles. Lunch at DuDok or Humanity House can also be incorporated into the programme, as well as other alternatives including visits to the European Police Office (Europol) or the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, if desired.
Please note: The organisations that we visit operate during normal working hours, which means that they are not always able to receive visitors. In such cases, the programme will be adjusted accordingly.
