9-23 February, 2015: Multimedia exhibition 'Justice Matters'
From 9 to 23 February, 2015 Leiden University hosts 'Justice Matters', a multimedia exhibition illustrating the raison d'être and the work of the International Criminal Court (ICC). The exhibition is open to the public in the atrium of the University's Pieter de la Court building.
The ICC exhibition 'Justice Matters' uses intimate portraits and videos to explore how justice is crucial to survivors of the world's most heinous crimes, and how it matters to the world as we strive together to achieve lasting peace.
It also illustrates the daily matters of justice, inside the ICC Courtroom and behind the scenes, to show exactly what it takes to make justice happen.
The exhibit is made possible by the City of The Hague and the Government of Switzerland and is currently 'travelling' around the world. 'Justice Matters' is brought to the Faculty of Social and Behavourial Sciences by the Institute of Political Science.
'Justice Matters' is also the title of the official exhibition opening lecture. This will be held by Judge Sanji Mmasenono Monageng, a human rights expert and First Vice-President of the ICC, on 12 February, 2015, from 15:00 to 17:00 at the Institute of Political Science.

The ICC exhibit marks the launch of a new specialisation in International Organisation within Leiden's Political Science masters programme, which will enroll its first students in September 2015.
