The Hague still benefits from the hundreds of international organizations in the city. This is evidenced by a recent study by the consultancy agency Decisio, commissioned by The Hague gemeente.
According to the report, last year The Hague had 455 international organizations, including major organizations such as the International Court of Justice and the OPCW, but also international schools, knowledge institutions and NGOs. Together they account for ten percent of employment in the city of Peace & Law.
Furthermore these the organizations contribute €5.8 billion to the city’s economy.
After years of employment growth at International organizations a slow down is anticipated with increase of 1% forecast between 2016 and 2020.
Currently, these organizations in The Hague employ 20,400 people, of whom sixty percent are expats and internationals.
