‘Roosevelt in The Hague’

In the morning of Friday, 22 April at the Peace Palace, the Roosevelt Foundation and The Hague Institute for Global Justice hosted the Roosevelt Awards Laureates event titled ‘Roosevelt in The Hague,’ and chaired by His Royal Highness Prince Constantijn.

In the presence of the Laureates who have received a Four Freedoms Award during the Four Freedoms Awards Ceremony the day before in Middelburg, this event was meant to present each of the Laureates and their field of activities:


In the afternoon, The Hague Institute hosted four Round Table discussions with experts and practitioners to discuss in depth one of the Four Freedoms in the presence of one of the Laureates.

With the event ‘Roosevelt in The Hague‘ the Roosevelt Foundation and The Hague Institute for Global Justice together aim to engage, develop and test policy and educational frameworks that will enable key stakeholders to address the Four Freedoms effectively in our time. The event will inter alia involve the various fields of work of former, present and future Four Freedoms Awards Laureates.
