Luke Hart: "Only when we choose to think from the perspective of victims can we truly do something about domestic violence."

As the International City of Peace and Justice, The Hague is home to the International Criminal Court (ICC). With over 120 signatories, the ICC is one of the few global bodies holding governments accountable for their actions.
