Contributing States and Partner Institutions

The United Nations General Assembly regularly “calls upon Member States and interested organizations to give favourable consideration to the appeal of the Academy for a continuation of support and a possible increase in their financial contributions, to enable the Academy to carry out its activities, particularly those relating to the summer and winter courses, regional courses and programmes of the Centre for Studies and Research in International Law and International Relations”
(A/RES/78/107, para. 24 of 11 December 2023).

The Academy has thus from its very origin been able to count on the generous support of many countries. All of our sponsors are regularly acknowledged in our annual reports.

The following States contributed to the 2022 and/or 2023 budget of the Academy:

Andorra                                                                                                        Austria                                                                                                          Belgium – Wallonia-Brussels Federation




Furthermore, the Academy has the privilege of being located in close proximity to the International Court of Justice, the Permanent Court of Arbitration, the International Criminal Court and other international tribunals, as well as the Hague Conference on Private International Law. The members of these different institutions traditionally enrich the programmes of the Academy by giving lectures, by receiving our attendees and by exchanging views with them. We are pleased to count other organizations among our partners as well:

The Carnegie Foundation is the managing authority of the Peace Palace and as such it hosts several international legal institutions, among which the Academy. Its Governing Board also constitutes the Administrative Board of the Academy and is tasked with financial and logistical matters.
