Trip to The Hague


Trip to The Hague

Like every year, the SIB will pay a visit to The Hague, the international city of peace and justice. For only €7,50, you can join us on this trip on Thursday 5 October. You can only sign up if you are SIB member, but if you aren’t, you can (of course) become a member now (at and sign up for this activity immediately!

We will leave in the morning and go to the International Criminal Court, where we will get a tour and attend a presentation. We will also have the chance to be present at the hearing of Laurent Gbagbo (former President of Côte d’Ivoire) or Ongwen Case (Commander in the Lord’s Resistance Army), both of whom have been charged with multiple crimes against humanity.

In the afternoon, we will make our way to the Hague Centre for Strategic Studies. This internationally renowned think-tank and research centre strives to “transform global challenges of today into solutions for tomorrow” by producing strategic surveys, innovative policy recommendations, risk assessments and geopolitical security analyses. Some of their staff members – one of whom gave a lecture at the SIB last year! – will tell us about their work.

When we are finished, we will go for a small tour through the city, have dinner together and travel back to Groningen.
