UNA Westminster plans to lead a study tour to The Hague, Luxembourg and Strasbourg, Europe’s three cities principally linked with the exercise of law, and also to Paris to visit UNESCO. Starting on Saturday 22 September from central London, the tour group will return on Saturday 29 September.

In The Hague, as well as the chance to learn about the work of the International Court of Justice and the International Criminal Court, the group will visit the great Peace Palace financed by the philanthropist Andrew Carnegie. The group then travels to Luxembourg which hosts the European Court of Justice and then on to Strasbourg to visit the European Parliament which will be in session, the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights.

The group will travel to Paris to visit UNESCO to hear presentations on several of its key programmes. After a visit to the striking Fondation Louis Vuitton designed by Frank Gehry, the group will travel to Compiègne for their last night and farewell dinner. On the way to Calais, they will visit the Clairiere de l'Armistice which hosted the 1918 Armistice and was used by Hitler to accept France’s surrender in 1940. The group will reach London by 7pm.
