Palace of Peace (Vredespaleis)

The Palace of Peace was inaugurated on August 28 1913, a year before the start of the First World War. The architect, Cordonnier, came from Lille in France. First created to house the permanent Court of Arbitration, it was taken over in 1922 by the permanent Court of Justice, which then became the International Court of Justice in 1946. The Palace has also been occupied, since 1923, by the Hague Academy of International Law.
