Brandeis in the Hague

Brandeis in The Hague students at the Peace Palace.

The Brandeis in The Hague program is an intensive academic experience open to students in all fields of study. It covers a wide range of global concerns, combining classroom study and immersion in the international law networks associated with this famous “International City of Peace and Justice.”

Students in this program study in the historic Dutch city that has become a modern symbol in the search for global justice. They explore firsthand how international courts confront a range of global problems; meeting with judges, advocates and academic specialists for a broad survey of the international legal process.

Students live in the adjacent university town of Leiden and have direct access to major tribunals sitting in The Hague, including the International Court of Justice, the International Criminal Court, the Peace Palace and special war-crimes tribunals.

Program participants also connect with research centers working on a variety of global issues including ethnic violence, national and regional reconciliation, economic development, environmental policy, social rights and responsive governance.
