Nora Stehouwer-van Iersel

We proudly present our Friend of the Month: Nora Stehouwer-van Iersel!

“The promotion of peace through justice is done by the Courts, Tribunals and the Peace Palace in The Hague, but can also be done on an individual level in your daily life. It starts there! I became Friend of the Peace Palace because I think the institute deserves support and it is important that we all multiply our common efforts for peace and justice.”
