The Hague Peace Projects was brought to life by four individuals who all work in the field of human rights and conflicts. Together, they agreed that more could be done to provide people in Europe and in countries of conflict with genuine, reliable information about these conflicts. Far too often news reports and human rights organizations focus only on the symptoms of war: explosions, number of deaths and refugees, battles and sieges, instead of the root causes of these conflicts, ulterior motives and interests.
The four founders however, believe that it is important to know who the main actors behind the scenes are and what objectives they have, where the funding and the weapons come from and who the true victims are.
Only thorough research, analysis and regular personal contact with the diaspora in Europe, local journalists and activists on the ground, can such a true image of a conflict been given. And only with this kind of information about the true causes and consequences of conflicts, can solutions be formulated and relevant action be taken.
