The Hague Academic Coalition
About The Hague Academic Coalition (HAC)
The Coalition was established in 2004 to promote collaborative efforts between the founding institutions. Specifically, the HAC intends to promote research, education and public debate in support of the enhancement of international law, governance and international policies and negotiations towards justice, peace and sustainable development.
As part of this broad objective, the HAC particularly seeks to support the work of the various international courts, tribunals and national and international organisations based in The Hague, including the ICC, ICJ, ICTY and the OPCW. In addition the HAC cooperates closely with the Municipality of The Hague, the Province of South Holland, the Dutch Raad voor de Rechtspraak, and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The HAC actively promotes:
• cooperation with other academic, policy and judicial agencies in The Hague and the Netherlands;
• international co-operation with similar organisations elsewhere in the world;
• the provision of postgraduate and post-academic courses relevant to students and practitioners in the fields indicated above;
• scholarly and policy-orientated research as well as consultancy activities;
• publications of its conference proceedings and lectures;
• public events targeted at the international community in The Hague, aiming at practitioners and students of international law, diplomacy and development.
