Malta is a small, island country in the Mediterranean Sea that lies south of the island of Sicily, Italy. Malta has promoted itself successfully as an entirely bi-lingual nation for Maltese and English. It counts for many educational institutes in the rest of the world as a country where English is the first language and they therefore will often even subsidize students to go there to learn it. The vast majority of Maltese citizens speak English to a very high standard.
The beautiful capital of Malta, Valletta is known to be home of some of the best educational institutions. Universities such as the University of Malta are well known for the diversified range of courses and successful alumni.

This phenomenon has also greatly changed the way we communicate individually and socially as well as affected heritage and cultural institutions, challenging their role in today’s society. Digitalisation has also enabled the emergence of new forms of authorship, thus broadening the concept of art and literature....

Ocean Governance is a topic of increasing significance and concern in the 21st century. The 1982 UN Law of the Sea Convention and other International law instruments are useful tools that safeguard the rule of International Maritime law. Notwithstanding their valuable contribution emerging international concerns, essentially based on the escalating crisis of unsustainability, instigate an urgent need to explore new trans-disciplinary approaches to ocean governance. Evidently, a more comprehensive, legal framework is required to improve the manner in which States and their nationals maintain the rule of law in marine areas beyond national jurisdiction and in regulating anthropogenic activities affecting the ocean and its resources. Emerging issues and threats, such as global maritime security, the sustainable use of the oceans and their resources, as well as linkages between natural sciences, socio-economic requirements and the law, necessitate a multidisciplinary approach for promoting learning and research on ocean governance....
