About Us:

The Hague Hacks is an organization that strives to bridge the gap between human rights and technology by connecting a range of trans-disciplinary actors to create and/or develop technology that empowers human rights defenders and improves the safety and freedom of victims of human rights violations. We do so by organizing meet-ups, such as our Hague Hacks Festival and our Ideation Sessions, to bring diverse actors together to discuss, dissect and brainstorm possible technological aids/solutions to complex human rights issues. The Hague Hacks is one of many projects with The Hague Peace Projects, a young and dynamic community of peace advocates, diaspora members, and human rights defenders.
The Hague Hacks Team is scheduled to host their annual The Hague Hacks Festival, that will take place on Friday 6th December, 2019. The event will bring together : tech experts, designers, engineers, academia, human rights defenders, members of diaspora, and human rights problem owners, to share their plurality of perspectives and  while enriching the problem solving process. This will lead to innovative new ideas for human rights advocacy which we believe would never have occur outside of the Festival ideation sessions.
