More about:

International peace and justice. Big concepts that RNW is committed to reporting on from a personal perspective, telling stories that make abstract concepts human. In this spirit we’re proud to be partners in a TEDx event that will be taking place in The Hague on September 9th.

TED is a nonprofit organisation devoted to Ideas Worth Spreading. The best TED talks are featured on the website and many of these go viral with millions of hits. A TEDx is an independently organised local event, using the TED concept. As part of the celebrations for its 100th anniversary, the Peace Palace in The Hague will be the venue for a series of talks around the theme international peace and justice. RNW helped select and is training the speakers and has created the website for the event, tedxhagueacademy.org

One of the nine speakers is Theodor Meron, one of international law’s heavyweights - not only current President of the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) - but also a leading scholar of international humanitarian law, human rights, and international criminal law.

Meron was born in Poland in 1930 and in this short video he tells RNW how his childhood under the Nazis shaped his determination to work for international justice.

If you want to know more about Theodor Meron and the upcoming TEDx, including information about all the speakers and getting involved in the event, visit the dedicated website. Tedxhagueacademy.org
