International Law in Practice: Georgia and Ukraine

Individual liberties are to be protected by state-like actors. For the Dutch Democratic Party D66, the freedom and protection of individuals does not stop at the borders of a nation-state.  Think & act internationally is one of its guiding principles.

Security on the national and supra national level is needed for the individual to thrive and come to full fruition.  The D66 division Social-Liberalism and the division of The Hague, City of International Peace & Justice, in partnership with The Hague Institute for Global Justice, were pleased to host a discussion evening on International Law in Practice. Speakers:

  • Dr. Aaron Matta: Senior Researcher in the Rule of Law Program at The Hague Institute for Global Justice
  • Ambassador Herman Schaper:  D66 Senator and former NATO Permanent Representative of the Netherlands
  • Ms. Crista Huisman: Chief of Reporting Section at the European Union Advisory Mission in Ukraine and former Chief Planning at the European Union Monitoring Mission in Georgia
  • Dr. Piotr Kobza: First Counsellor in the Political-Economic Section of the Embassy of the Republic of Poland to The Netherlands
