The Hague Academy of International Law, which was conceived more than a century ago as an instrument for the promotion of peace through law, began to operate in 1923.  It was established through funds received from the Carnegie Foundation and with the support of Tobias Asser, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.  It has its seat at the Peace Palace, in the vicinity of the International Court of Justice and the Permanent Court of Arbitration. The Academy organizes annual Summer Courses in Public International Law and Private International Law, which are open to attendees from all countries of the world.

Over time, other activities have been added: the Centre for Studies and Research, the External Programme, the Programme for Advanced Studies, and Colloquia. Altogether, these activities make the Academy an institution that is constantly striving to adapt its dissemination of knowledge of international law to be in line with the needs of the time. The General Assembly of the United Nations regularly underlines “the contributions of the Hague Academy to the teaching, study, dissemination and wider appreciation of international law”.

Over the years, more than 1,500 lecturers from all backgrounds have taught at the Academy, and their courses have been followed by more than 45,000 students. A great number of these have become great jurists, famous academics, well-known practitioners, renowned diplomats, or leading politicians. Some of them return to the Academy as lecturers. In this regard, a stay at The Hague is an exceptional opportunity for students of so many different nationalities not only to develop enduring and precious friendships throughout the world, but also to build up their future professional network.
