Join us on July 4, 2012 at the historic Nieuwe Kerk in Delft, the Netherlands, for a ceremony honoring the Grotian tradition and celebrating the 10 year anniversary of International Criminal Court. The Nieuwe Kerk is the same site as the July 4, 1899 celebration.

Ceremonial wreath laying and lecture by U.S. Ambassador for war crimes, Stephen J. Rapp and John Washburn, convenor of the
American Coalition for the International Criminal Court (AMICC).

Lecture on the U.S. and The Hague tradition by internationally prominent historian on International Law and The Hague Tradition, Dr. Arthur Eyffinger. Dr. Eyffinger's company,
Judicap, will convene an educational exhibition on the history of International Law and The Hague Tradition.
