Joel-Benoît D’Onorio has recently been honoured by the Academy of Moral and Political Sciences in Paris for his work “Monaco, Monarchy and Democracy”, which is in its second edition.
A constitutionalist, the laureate has long taught public law at the Faculty of Aix-en-Provence, of which he is an honorary professor. He still chairs the Institut Portalis which contributes to the training of undergraduate students.
The distinction was conferred on him under the gold Coupole of the Institut de France, which gathers together all the academies including the famous French Academy, during a majestic ceremony accompanied by the drums of the Republican Guard.
Present from Monaco were Dr Michel-Yves Mourou, President of the Council of the Crown, Mr Laurent Anselmi, Director of Judicial Services and President of the Council of State, as well as Professor Yves Gaudemet, President of the Superior Committee of Legal Studies of the Principality, himself an academician.
At the end of the ceremony, Professor D’Onorio, whose clear and complete work contributes significantly to the knowledge of Monegasque institutions, was warmly congratulated by all those present.
