Welcome to the website of the Permanent Representation of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to the International Criminal Court in The Hague.
International legal order
The Permanent Representation works to promote the interests of the Kingdom of the Netherlands at the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague. The ICC plays a central role in the fight against impunity in cases of violations of international law and human rights. Promoting the international legal order is a cornerstone of Dutch foreign policy and a constitutional obligation of the government. In addition, the Netherlands enjoys a special position as host country to the ICC.
The Permanent Representation is located at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in The Hague.
