  • Peace Poet Hanneke Eggels: ‘Bertha’s Bell in GMT’

    June 3, 2016

    Almost four years ago, we interviewed Hanneke Eggel,s, a peace poet, who expresses her concern for peace and justice through the means of poetry. Ms. Eggels recognizes the strong link between poetry and politics, since many peace activists have used poetry as an effective means to communicate their ideas to a worldwide audience.

    For this year, ms. Eggels was inspired to write a poem about Bertha von Suttner. Since June is the month of Bertha von Suttner birthday as well as the day of the death, we have decided to publish Ms. Eggels’ poem: ‘Bertha ‘s Bell in GMT’.

  • Library User in the Spotlight: Mathijs Notermans, Law and Peace in the Work of Hans Kelsen, Dutch PhD-thesis

    June 3, 2016

    Hans Kelsen is renowned in the world of legal philosophy as one of the most important legal scholars of the 20th century and his most important work which brought him this renown, Pure Theory of Law, is therefore ‘world famous’. However, he is less well known as a legal pacifist and his main writings on law and peace, such as Peace through Law, are very rarely studied and almost never considered in relation to his Pure Theory of Law. Mathijs Notermans wrote his PhD-thesis on this topic. Notermans spent a lot of time reading and writing in the Peace Palace Library, “a magnificent place” where he found “the necessary peace and quiet and got inspired by the very subject”. He defended his PhD-thesis successfully on 24 March 2016 at Leiden University.
