On the sidelines of a UN discussion on the oceans and the law of the sea, Monaco’s Permanent Representation in New York organised a parallel event aimed at French-speaking legal experts on 6 December.

At the event, Professor Mathias Forteau from the Université de Paris-Nanterre presented a collective work entitled Treatise on the International Law of the Sea. The work offers a comprehensive overview of the law of the sea, as set out in the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea of 1982. It is an indispensable tool for students and practitioners in the field.

The discussions which took place at this event highlighted the importance of promoting legal works published in French.

Plans are already in place to work with the Permanent Representation of the International Organisation of La Francophonie in New York in advance of meetings on the oceans next year.

The event also featured a presentation on the Institute for the Economic Law of the Sea (INDEMER), which was established in the Principality in 1985, by Ms Annick de Marffy-Mantuano, President of the Institute’s Scientific Board. Ms de Marffy-Mantuano particularly stressed the need for an integrated approach incorporating legal, economic, environmental and political aspects.
