Carnegie Foundation logoGeneral information
The Carnegie Foundation is the managing authority of the Peace Palace. The Foundation has a magnificent library and provides a rich source of legal information at the service of peace and justice. The Carnegie Foundation is the host to the international institutions in the Peace Palace, and also serves as an intermediary to the Hague Academy of International Law with its annual well known summer courses in international law. The Carnegie Foundation encourages the dialogue and study of the peace ideal through seminars, and the Foundation belongs to an international network of Carnegie Institutions.

The Peace Palace and the beautiful gardens are a lively monument for a number of important legal institutions: The International Court of Justice, The Permanent Court of Arbitration, the Hague Academy of International Law and the Peace Palace Library. The Carnegie Foundation is the official host of these institutions. At the same time, the Carnegie Foundation endeavours to open the Peace Palace to international conferences about relevant themes of law, the environment, diplomatic relations, public/private international partnerships, human rights, and migration to name a few. The current project which is underway, creating a new wing next to the palace, will be devoted to the library and the Academy and will enhance both the facilities and the reputation of this prestigious institution.
