With the Peace Palace as its beating heart, The Hague is the international city of peace and justice. People here strive to create a safer, more just world every day and individuals come from all corners of the world and join forces to solve global issues. For everyone: both now and in the future. This makes The Hague a logical place to hold international conferences. As an extension of justice, over 160 international organisations in The Hague work tirelessly on international safety issues. One of these is the OPCW, the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons, which was awarded the Nobel Peace Price in 2013.
