This chapter comments on Article 116 of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court. Article 116 allows the Court to receive and utilize, as additional funds, voluntary contributions from Governments, international organizations, individuals, corporations and other entities, in accordance with relevant criteria adopted by the Assembly of States Parties. This criteria is set out in the Financial Regulations and Rules, which specify that voluntary contributions must be ‘consistent with the nature and functions of the Court’. Amounts received by the Court in the form of voluntary contributions have been modest. For the year 2014, they totalled less than €600,000, almost all of this earmarked for special projects such as building legal expertise, cooperation, relocation, and seminars.
