A major study on T.M.C. Asser

The year 2019 saw the publication of Arthur Eyffinger’s major study of the life, thought and works of T.M.C. Asser (1838-1913). It is the outcome of a full decade of painstaking research and presents a fresh new outlook based on a wealth of newly disclosed research material.

Tobias Asser, who was a professor of long-standing at Amsterdam University, is the jewel in the crown of an ongoing family tradition of well over two centuries of legal luminaries. He was a key figure in the so-called Oeuvre de La Haye and the rise of the Hague Tradition of international law. Asser was co-founder of the Institut de droit international (*1873) and the International Law Association (*1873), founder of the Conférence de La Haye (*1893), initiator of the Hague Academy of International Law (*1924) and the only Dutchman ever to be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize (1911).

The two-volume monograph was published with Brill Publishers in the series Studies in the History of International Law, under the directorship of Prof. Randall Lesaffer. Asser presided over the silver jubilee session of the Institut in The Hague in 1898, on the eve of the First Hague Peace Conference (1899). In August 2019, the membres of the Institut once again convened in The Hague under the chairmanship of their Dutch President, the current professor of Public International Law at Leiden University, Nico Schrijver. Eyffinger’s two-volume monograph was presented on the occasion.

Oorlog, Vrede of Bestand? 1609 door de ogen van Hugo de Groot

This study presents a survey in Dutch of Hugo Grotius’ political views and religious tenets around 1609, at a critical juncture in the Dutch Revolt. The texts are taken from Grotius’ publications and correspondence on the eve of the Twelve Years’ Truce (1609-1621) and the Remonstrant Troubles (1610-1619) that put a dramatic ending to his political career in the Netherlands.
