On the 25th of October, the Jason Institute organized a visit to the Peace Palace wich was truly remarkable. The elegant and historic palace made a great impression and truly showed the presence of great international cooperation.
The Peace Palace, a symbol of diplomacy and international cooperation, is a place where ideas are exchanged, and global war related issues are addressed. The art works and architecture depicted a peace which not only incorporated an absence of war but also the need for justice. Walking through its grand halls and intricate architecture, one can’t help but feel the weight of history and the significance of the work that takes place within these walls.
The visit to the the Peace Palace yesterday brought together a diverse group of students, all driven by a shared passion for peace, security, and global cooperation. We were happy to invite many students from Leiden University and creating the opportunity to engage in thought-provoking conversations, learn, and gain a deeper understanding of the challenges international law faces.
As we were walking through the halls, the atmosphere reflected the ideals the Peace Palace represents. It was a reminder that, even in a world filled with complex issues and conflicts, there is a place where individuals can come together to seek common ground and work towards a more peaceful and secure future. Therefore, this visit was highly relevant for its participators and made us wander about the cases discussed and the ones that will be discussed.
As we left the Peace Palace yesterday, we felt inspired by the experience. It served as a reminder that, no matter how daunting the challenges may seem, there are dedicated individuals and institutions working tirelessly to promote peace and international understanding. Hopefully, many more people can visit this beautiful building.
