The International Maritime Human Rights Conference

This second International Maritime Human Rights Conference will focus explicitly on addressing the issue of maritime human rights in relation to business and associated welfare issues throughout the maritime environment by bringing together industry, civil society and government-level leaders for discussion and debate on current issues that universally affect the human element at sea.

The event will openly tackle human rights requirements in the maritime environment. It will explore topical and emerging matters, and it will investigate human rights protections and available remedies for abuses. Undertaken by both national and international experts, the event will deliver incisive commentary and concepts to the audience for consideration and debate.
