The Hague Peace Projects is a young and dynamic peace organization based in The Hague, The Netherlands, the “International City of Peace and Justice”. The Hague Peace Projects (HPP) was founded in 2014 by four human rights professionals with one goal: to create a safe space for human rights activists from conflict areas and dictatorial regimes to come together, receive support and be empowered to continue their important work for peace and justice. Engaging with the migrant and diaspora communities, these human rights activists are given the tools and resource to empower themselves, building trust amongst groups in conflict, and create strong actions for change, both locally and back in their countries of origins.
