Historical Background
Hague Appeal for Peace (HAP) was both an organization (based in New York, New York) and a conference, held May 11-15, 1999 at The Hague, Netherlands, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Hague Peace Conferences of 1899. HAP defined itself as an organization with a global campaign to create a "culture of peace", to strengthen humanitarian and human rights laws and institutions, to advance the prevention, peaceful resolution, and transformation of conflicts, to abolish nuclear weapons and develop disarmament campaigns, and to identify the root causes of war. More than 800 organizations--human rights, environmental, gender, disarmament-- endorsed the HAP campaign. Cora Weiss was the president; Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Graça Machel, Jody Williams, José Ramos-Horta, Queen Noor of Jordan, the Dalai Lama and many others, lent their support. The Hague Appeal for Peace organization appeared to wind down around 2005. According to its website (2007), the work of HAP was taken over by Peace Boat US, a non-governmental and non-profit organization working to promote peace, human rights, equitable and sustainable development, and respect for the environment throughout the United States and the world.

Collection Overview
The Hague Appeal for Peace records include correspondence, financial records, minutes of meetings, information about the 1999 HAP conference, conference and post-conference reports; correspondence, speeches and memoranda of Cora Weiss; issues of Peace Matters, HAP's periodical; reference files about organizations working for peace and disarmament; and photographs, audiocassettes, and videotapes.
