Fietstocht internationaal recht

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.

Requesting tours and tour costs

Tours are organised either upon request or via open registration. When requesting tours, it is advisable to do so well in advance (preferably 2 months beforehand). To request a tour, send an email to opmaat@prodemos.nl.

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.
