The Peace Palace is the worldwide icon of peace ‘through law’

The Carnegie Foundation ensures that the Peace Palace serves world peace. To that end, we maintain the Peace Palace and facilitate the International Court of Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitration, as well as The Hague Academy of International Law. We offer these institutions the services of the Peace Palace Library and provide available tools so they can settle international conflicts peacefully. In addition, we work towards a better world by convening, educating and inspiring people worldwide.
