Human Rights at Sea: Sixth Annual Report promotes awareness, implementation and accountability of human rights in Maritime cluster

Human Rights at Sea

( This report from "Human Rights at Sea" aims to explicitly raise awareness, implementation and accountability of human rights provisions throughout the maritime environment, especially where they are currently absent, ignored, or being abused.

CEO, David Hammond, commented: “Each year we report that it has been busier than the previous year, that the scope and scale of our work has increased and most importantly, that the ‘human rights at sea’ narrative is growing internationally. This has never been truer in this current reporting period. 2021 and beyond are going to be exciting periods in our organisation’s development and already, we are planning the next report’s findings reflecting new investment, innovative work areas and new global partnerships.”
