Chapter Summary

One consequence of the arrangements of 1920 to establish the Permanent Court and of the decision then adopted for its link with the League of Nations, was a solution to the problem of financing the Court. Within that broad framework, the Court was identified as one of several autonomous organizations, as that term was used in the League's Financial Regulations. The distinguishing feature of this system is that there was no identity between the States contributing to the funds of the Court and the international judicial community as it then existed, those States that were parties to the Protocol of Signature of the Statute of the Court. The sums appropriated under the foregoing arrangements are now divided into three principal chapters: (a) Members of the Court; (b) the Registry; (c) Programme Support. Together they comprise one section of the United Nations budget.

Keywords: financial administration; international court; League of Nations; Registry staff; United Nations budget
