Peace & Justice
The Hague is also the city of international justice. In 1913 the Peace Palace was opened, erected on the estates of Rustenburg and Buitenlust. The motto of the Peace Palace is 'Peace by Justice'. In this national monument several peace conferences were organized and now the International Court of Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitrage reside here. The Peace Palace regularly hosts events for organizations that search peaceful resolutions for international disputes.
