A total of 18 participants from various countries bordering the Mediterranean, Baltic, Black and Caspian Seas and beyond are taking part in the 13th edition of the International Ocean Institute (IOI) Regional Ocean Governance Course in Malta. They come from Algeria, Tunisia, Egypt, Greece, Palestine, Romania, Georgia, Turkmenistan, Poland, Lithuania, China and Malta.

The five-week course deals with contemporary approaches to coastal and ocean management, with an emphasis on moral, ethical and legal values in ocean governance under the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS) and other international instruments and agreements. For the first time, the course is accredi­ted by the University of Malta in the form of three stand-alone study units. Students on other University courses, including the Master in Ocean Governance and the Master in Applied Oceanography will attend some of the IOI course lectures.

The course was launched at a ceremony that was addressed among others  by European Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries Karmenu Vella via a video message.

Over the previous 12 years, the IOI Malta course has trained over 200 mid-career participants from 35 countries.
