Embassy Centennial Book Donation Project Mexico, Bolivia and New Zealand 01

So far, 25 Embassies in The Hague have generously contributed and therefore enriched our National Law Collection. This month, we’ve welcomed the Embassies of Mexico, Bolivia and New Zealand in the library. Find out which publications are now part of library collection.
