Smithsonian Secretary S. Dillon Ripley introduces two articles featured in this month's issue of the Smithsonian magazine, highlighting the major programs of the newly founded Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The programs deal with international law and cooperation in the uses of the high seas and sea beds for the sake of global environmental protection. The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars intends to support environmental laws with its assembly of fellows and guest scholars in ocean studies. The Smithsonian Institution, as a whole, has joined the effort by teaming up with the American Law Institute and the American Bar Association to sponsor a course in environmental law.
