• De kleine Hoge Raad voor Dummies

    Nouvelle - mai 6, 2019

    Afgelopen maandag mochten wij uit handen van de bibliotheek/het kennisplein van de Hoge Raad der Nederlanden een donatie ontvangen. Hartelijk dank! De kleine Hoge Raad voor Dummies vertelt over de Hoge Raad, de hoogste rechter in ons land op het gebied van het civiel-, straf- en belastingrecht. Het boekje legt op een toegankelijke manier uit wat de taken van de Hoge Raad zijn (en wat juist niet) en beschrijft op welke manier de Hoge Raad die taken uitvoert. Ook lees je over de geschiedenis van de Hoge Raad, zijn organisatie en de procureur-generaal bij de Hoge Raad en zijn parket. Bovendien gaat het boekje in op de betekenis van een ‘rechtsstaat’ en de rol van de hoogste rechter daarin. Maarten Feteris is president van de Hoge Raad en hoogleraar formeel belastingrecht aan de Erasmus Universiteit Rotterdam. Jason van Heusden is de persoonlijk medewerker van de president van de Hoge Raad en raadsheer-plaatsvervanger in het Gerechtshof Amsterdam.

  • All I want for Christmas is … Peace!

    Blog - décembre 21, 2018

    Peace is an elusive thing. Everyone wants peace, yet few seem to actually possess it in any substantive form. For many, the attraction of the Christmas season is the momentary fulfillment of that dream, the wonderful moment of ‘Peace on Earth’. For one night, it seems possible. As Christmas approaches, we experience a sense of ‘Peace on Earth’. The Peace Palace upholds the ideal of ‘Peace through Law’: resolving international conflicts by means of international adjudication. Some reading suggestions on this topic from your Library for the coming Christmas season. Happy Christmas!

    Blog - décembre 21, 2018

    Only five months after the outbreak of the Great War in Europe, on and around Christmas Day 1914, the sounds of rifles firing and shells exploding faded in a number of places along the Western Front in favor of holiday celebrations in the trenches and gestures of goodwill between enemies. Late on Christmas Eve 1914, men of the British Expeditionary Force heard Germans troops in the trenches opposite them singing carols and patriotic songs and saw lanterns and small fir trees along their trenches. Messages began to be shouted between the trenches.
