The Hague Peace Projects is a collective of young professionals who act as catalysts of peace all over the world. Many of them have personally lived through circumstances of violence and oppression themselves and worked as human rights activists in their countries of origin.
We believe that only by bringing different actors within a conflict – including victims – to the same table, can there be an opportunity to solve a conflict through dialogue instead of violence. Together we can build a world free from fear of violence or oppression.
By building trust between opposing communities and creating safe spaces for dialogue, we aim to clarify root causes of conflict and establish a common ground for people to work together on peaceful solutions. We try to reconstruct people’s motivation and skills to deal with conflicts peacefully, using a wide range of tools such as research, advocacy, media, cultural events, education, training, journalism etc.
