  • Academy Students in the Spotlight

    July 24, 2015

    Attending The Hague Academy of International Law was one of the best experiences in my life. I am very proud that I have this chance to take advantage of the best law professors. The participation in this session gave me a great chance to improve my knowledge on Public International law.

    The Peace Palace Library is a valuable collection of law books and articles in international law. Also, books with different subjects can be found in this collection. One of the striking features of this library is that it is up-to-date, and you can have both old and new resources together in order to keep you updated about the latest developments in international law. Altogether this library is a suitable environment for research. Nice and helpful staff of the library, who provide a comfortable environment and makes it easy to get and find what you’re looking for, is another plus point for this place.

In the end of the MUN a resolution was drafted and voted upon. In the morning the participants could first listen to a keynote speech of Ms. Shamila Batohi, senior legal advisor to the Prosecutor at the International Criminal Court (ICC), on the principle of universal jurisdiction and the work of the ICC. So they were well prepared before they started with the MUN.

    Overall, it was an interesting day! Several observers were there to see how the participants worked together and exchanged insights!

  • University of Peace (UPEACE) Costa Rica Celebrates its 35th Anniversary

    July 24, 2015

    As it prepares to celebrate its 35th anniversary, a high priority of the UPEACE programme is to develop innovative educational materials on peace-related issues and to disseminate these through a network of partnerships to universities throughout the world. A new generation of leaders, academics and experts can thus be educated in their own countries on all the topics that promote mutual understanding between different nations and cultures, non-violence, security and peace. In this way, the efforts of UPEACE itself can be multiplied across the world, strengthening capacities to prevent and mediate conflict, particularly in developing countries, but also improving understanding in developed countries of the realities of the modern world. Currently UPEACE offers several Master’s Degree programmes (MA, Dual MA and Online MA) to students from all over the world, see www.upeace.org.

  • Library Special Collection : Johan Nieuhof’s images of China

    July 24, 2015

    In the mid-seventeenth century, the Dutch were at the height of their power and wanted to gain trade access in China. Despite the great opposition they succeeded in sending merchants there between 1655 and 1657. The steward, artist, and chronicler of the trade mission, Johan Nieuhof (1617-1672), wrote a travel journal and made many drawings of Chinese buildings, animals, plants, towns, rivers, landscapes, people and their costumes. The Dutch trade mission to the emperor of China was sponsored by the Dutch East India Company (Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie) and led by two of the company’s overseers, the merchants Pieter de Goyer and Jacob Keyzer. The envoy travelled first by sea from the Dutch colony at Batavia (Jakarta, Indonesia) where the Dutch East India Company was headquartered, to Canton and then by interior waterways to Beijing.

    The book Het Gezantschap der Neerlandtsche Oost-Indische Compagnie, aan den grooten Tartarischen Cham was based on the travel diary and it was illustrated with engravings which were produced on the basis of the drawings. The book also contains a map charting the route taken from Java to Beijing. Nieuhof’s prints were standard visual sources for images that defined China for Europeans.

    The first edition was published in Amsterdam by the bookseller and art dealer Jacob van Meurs in 1665. It was translated into French (L’ambassade de la compagnie orientale des Provinces Unies vers l’empereur de la Chine, ou grand cam de Tartarie, 1665), German (Die Gesantschaft der Ost-Indischen Geselschaft in den Vereinigten Niederländern an den tartarischen Cham und nunmehr auch sinischen Keiser, 1666), Latin (Legatio Batavica ad magnum Tartarae Chamun, 1668), and English (An embassy from the East-India Company of the United Provinces, to the Grand Tartar Cham, Emperor of China, 1669). A touchstone for books on China, the book was excerpted and reprinted through the early eighteenth century.

    The French edition at the Peace Palace Library contains 145 engravings, and they are accessible and searchable on this page.
