Peace Palace

The Peace Palace is the global icon of peace and justice. In the palace, prestigious international institutions work daily on "Peace through Justice" and "Peace through Education". The Carnegie Foundation owns the Peace Palace, which houses the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the United Nations International Court of Justice and the Hague Academy of International Law. The Carnegie Foundation (1903) is named after Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919), a Scottish-American philanthropist who financed the construction of the Peace Palace. In his will, he stated that the Peace Palace should serve as a worldwide "Temple of Peace" for all eternity. Read more on the website of the Peace Palace.
