Chapter Summary

The costs incurred by the parties in international litigation can be high, even though the expenses of the principal permanent courts and tribunals are met not from fees paid by parties to cases, but rather from a regular budget to which the Member States contribute. The purpose of the Trust Fund was (and is still today) to provide financial assistance where this is needed in order to enable a State to have access to the Court for resolving a dispute. A perusal of the Annex to Resolution 55/7 shows that the scheme has many points in common with the Trust Fund for the International Court of Justice. With the recent expansion in the number of international courts and tribunals and the increase in the number of cases coming before them, international litigation today involves States from all parts of the world.
