Theme & Program

The theme of the Symposium, Building a More Just Society, aptly reflects the challenging times we are living in, and the Symposium will aim to stimulate, educate, and motivate all participants while reveling in the very special Mount Holyoke spirit that is so dear to all of us.

Next to enticing plenary sessions and informal workshops, the Symposium program will include an optional tour of the Peace Palace and the unique Panorama Mesdag, a casual walking dinner, and plenty of time for socializing. On Saturday evening we will celebrate our unique bond and friendship with a festive dinner and a benefit silent auction, which will feature products and services offered by attending alums.

Hague Symposium Registration


We are working full steam ahead to deliver another amazing symposium, but we are fully aware of the uncertainties still created by war in Ukraine and the aftermaths of the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to monitor the situation very closely and modify plans as needed.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Hague in October!
