This sketch shows two judges offices. In one, the judge is absent, but can be seen through the window. He is among the people (victims and perpetrators) who case he will be judging. In the second panel he is in his office (distracted, playing with his scales). Through the window, we can see the crime that happened far away he will be judging. The question this cartoon wants to ask is: should a judge rely solely on documentation in judging a case, or should he talk to the people involved top get more context and perspective?

Peace and war are struggling for dominance, ripping up the earth in the process. From the crack in the earth spews money, symbolizing what a waste of money and resources war truly is. Image by Karina Steens, Kiran Ghoerbien and Sharon Baldewwsingh.
The stork is the symbol of the city of The Hague, and the slogan of The Hague is 'City of Peace and Justice'. But like any other city there are still divisions between poor and rich, immigrants and non-immigrants, etc. The idea of this sketch is to have two storks hugging or kissing, using the negative space to show a divided city (e.g. run-down buildings vs villas). Idea by Belinda van der Gaay, Zhane Conte and Lisanne Kosters.
