    Other activities

    Clingendael - the Netherlands Institute of International Relations - is the leading Dutch think-tank and academy for international relations. Our research, training and public debate inspire and equip societies, businesses and governments to encourage a secure, sustainable, prosperous and just world.

    Clingendael Research
    Clingendael Research provides independent, interdisciplinary, evidence-based and policy-relevant recommendations about urgent international issues. Clingendael analyses the most important trends and issues in international environments and policy, evaluates international policy, studies opinions concerning and buy-in for international policy, develops new ideas and approaches to clarifying international developments, and provides advice on how to approach critical international issues.

    Clingendael Academy
    Clingendael Academy provides diplomatic training courses, thematic programmes (European Union, sustainability issues, economics and trade, security and conflict management) skills programmes, tailor-made training, expert seminars, open application courses and individual coaching in order to operate effectively at the international level. The Academy also offers capacity-building programmes to support the development of diplomatic academies or other training institutes. These programmes include advice on institutional development, training programmes and training methodologies, as well as train-the-trainer workshops.

    Public Platform
    The Clingendael Public Platform clarifies current international developments and shares knowledge with the public at large by means of an active role for Clingendael experts in traditional and online media; it offers a platform for sharing knowledge among scientists, politicians, policy-makers, social partners and businesses and, with this, provides inspiration for informed action by these parties; it publishes the online magazine Clingendael Spectator, organises idea exchanges and programs public meetings aimed at debate and dialogue with a broader audience about international relations from a Dutch perspective.

    Our research, training and platform activities are deployed in combination. Expertise in all three of these dimensions makes our institute unique.

    The Clingendael Institute is academically independent and unaffiliated to any political, social, or religious movement. As an independent platform, the Institute organises policy exchanges, conferences and roundtables, aimed at enhancing the quality of debate about international affairs.

    The Clingendael Institute has a vast network of local and international partners. Among others, it is member of the The Hague Academic Coalition (HAC), a platform for academic institutions in the Hague, which develops activities in the field of peace, justice and international affairs. It is also partner of the International Centre for Counter-Terrorism (ICCT - The Hague and the Knowledge Platform for Security & Rule of Law (KPSRL). In cooperation with Leiden University the Institute contributes to a two-year Master's Programme International Relations and Diplomacy (MIRD). The Clingendael Institute is affiliated to the Clingendael International Energy Programme (CIEP).
