  • “Our Work Here, is the Direct Result of Grotius’ Work at the End of the 17th Century”

    August 28, 2015

    August 28 is a special day for the Peace Palace as this day is our Anniversary! Today, 28 August 2015, it is 102 years ago that the opening ceremony of the Peace Palace took place. It is also the anniversary of the death of Hugo Grotius. Grotius, who died in 1645, is recognized as the founder of the vision of International Law of which the Permanent Court of Arbitration is an expression. During the opening ceremony, Abraham Pieter Cornelis van Karnebeek, former Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs and Chairman of the Board of the Carnegie Foundation, emphasized that the Peace Palace would not only be ‘the workplace where people would endeavour towards the reign of Peace through Law’, but also ‘a symbol’ for everyone who believed in the ideal ‘of civilization, that there would be no more wars between the Nations’. In that same spirit we, the people of Peace Palace, continue to strive for Peace. Every day!
