Description The article analyses successively the Principality of Monaco’s statehood in general international law; the manifestations and consequences of clashes between the Prince’s and people’s sovereignty; restrictions on the exercise of sovereign rights imposed in the past on the Principality by bilateral treaties with France which have constitutional rank in the Monegasque legal order; the constitutional and international legal context of Monaco’s integration into international institutions and organizations, first of all into the Council of Europe; the European Union dimension of Monaco’s statehood. The article scrutinizes various specificities of this statehood, which are corollary to exceptionally small parameters of the Monegasque state, among others, the concept of the Monegasque “nation” and of its right to self-determination, the unbalanced distribution of rights and obligations set down by Monaco’s bilateral treaties with France, or the phenomenon of the French law “vector” through which the Union law enters into the Monegasque law, however, the Principality being not able to control effectively this process.
