The Hague Justice Portal is a website that promotes, and provides greater access to, the institutions, courts and organisations in The Hague, The Netherlands, working in the field of international peace, justice and security. The Portal was officially launched by Her Royal Highness Princess Margriet of the Netherlands in The Hague on 6 April 2006.
An innovative project created by The Hague Academic Coalition, the Portal was officially launched in April 2006. In addition to the core legal institutions in The Hague such as the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court and the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, the Portal promotes, and provides greater access to, the work and the development of the large number of other international organisations, institutes and research centres based in The Hague, which are relevant to the pursuit of international peace, justice and security.
The portal is an excellent resource to keep up to date with recent developments in the field of justice worldwide. Since its inception, the Hague Justice Portal has enjoyed increasing popularity not only in the Netherlands, but also throughout Europe and around the world, informing visitors about recent developments and the work of institutions based in The Hague. In the last twelve months the Portal has received more than 8 million hits.
The new strategic plan for the Portal involves the development of social media, to promote its message while forging targeted new partnerships with those directly shaping the events in the world on international justice, peace and security.
