Saturday March 29, our new international project Peace & Justice will be officially launched at the iconic Peace Palace in The Hague, The Netherlands. This event will be the kick off of an international cartoon competition at schools and universities.
The project is a collaboration between Cartoon Movement, World Press Photo, the city of The Hague and the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and is aimed at promoting article 90 of the Dutch constitution. This article calls for the Dutch government to actively contribute to 'the promotion of the international legal order'.
The event includes a lecture about the importance of an international legal order by Nico Schrijver, professor of Public International Law, and talks by CM editor Tjeerd Royaards and World Press Photo representative Anne Schaepman about how political cartoons and photography can contribute to peace and justice.
