On 19 October 2018, as part of the ongoing work of the United Nations General Assembly Committee (Legal Matters), diplomat Florian Botto, Second Secretary at the Permanent Mission of Monaco to the United Nations in New York, spoke in support of the teaching, study, dissemination and understanding of international law.

International law, as Mr. Botto pointed out, is one way to strengthen international peace and security and promote friendly relations and cooperation among States.  Access to legal resources on the Internet, in all languages, remains a challenge in many countries, while information and communication technologies play an increasingly important role in our daily lives.

At this meeting, Mr. Botto recalled the support given by the Prince's Government since 2003 to the UN's "Amerasinghe Endowment," which, each year, enables nationals of developing countries to improve and deepen their knowledge of the law of the sea.  He also highlighted the role of the Institute for the Economic Law of the Sea (Institut du droit économique de la mer –INDEMER), which was established in Monaco in 1985, in improving the dissemination of the law of the sea to French-speaking practitioners.
