  • Library User in the Spotlight: Nathália Brandão

    December 20, 2017

    Welcome to Den Haag, an international city where peace and democracy are cardinal virtues! Sunday morning and I was right there: at the entrance, just waiting for the course on the fundamentals of European Union Law. In spite of being pervaded by both enthusiasm and anxiety, the iconic Peace Palace building and its glorious garden engaged me with anticipation of the things to come. I glimpsed a path that would lead me to an intellectual journey shrouded by a serene atmosphere.

  • Interview: A Historical Look at Latin-American Contributions in the Early Years of the Hague Academy

    August 30, 2017

    This Summer we had the pleasure of meeting mr. Walter Arevalo from Bogotá, Colombia. Walter attended The Hague Academy in 2016 and came back this summer to conduct research for his PhD thesis at the Peace Palace Library. We learned that the Academy not only made a lasting impression on Walter, but it also inspired him to publish an academic article on the early history of the Academy. Together with Professor Ricardo Abello, he decided to research the contributions of Latin America to international law through the lens of the Summer Courses in the early years of the Hague Academy. Few scholars have written about the history of the Academy, in particular former students, so we had to take the opportunity to interview Mr. Arevalo and Professor Abello about their interesting findings.

  • AAA Transitions into the Secretariat of The Hague Academy

    August 30, 2017

    Last month, the former board of the Association of Attendees and Alumni of The Hague Academy of International Law (AAA) together with the Secretariat of the Hague Academy hosted a farewell reception to mark the transition of the AAA to the Secreatriat of the Academy. The AAA was founded in 1923, the same year in which the first Summer Courses of the Academy took place. It’s aim was to maintain intellectual and friendly relations between the attendees and the alumni of the The Hague Academy and to develop and encourage an international spirit. To this end, the AAA organizes cultural and social events and activities during the Summer Programs of the Academy. After almost a 100 years of working side by side , it was time for a change. In december the curatorium felt that the Academy was in need of an actual Alumni Office and decided to merge the two institutions. The reception to mark this transition was a good moment to reflect on the illustrious history of the AAA. Speeches were given by Professor Thouvenin, Secretary – General of the Hague Academy and Mr. Maurice Kamga, Secretary-General of the AAA. Delegation members of the National Group of the AAA in Germany even traveled to The Hague to attend this special event.

  • Monique’s Final Thoughts

    August 4, 2017

    Last Monday, it was time to say our final goodbye to our beloved colleague, Ms. Monique Legerman. Monique has worked at the Academy since 2010 and successfully contributed to the most important projects in recent years, such as the Advanced Course on International Criminal Law and the External Programme of the Academy that will commence in 2019. Throughout her time in the Peace Palace, Monique helped to create a pleasant work environment and she is held in high regard by all her colleagues. It’s therefore with mixed feelings that we say goodbye to her; a feeling of sadness to see her go and yet happiness to see her embark on the next stage in her career at Erasmus University in Rotterdam. We will miss her dearly and wish her the best of luck in all future endeavors. Here are Monique’s final thoughts on her time at the Academy….
