Human Rights at Sea Corporate Profile Document for Year 4 Published
“Over the past year Human Rights at Sea has successfully brought fundamental seafarers’ rights issues to the attention of a wider audience than ever before. The detailed list of achievements from David Hammond and his small but very dedicated team is impressive by any standards, bringing home the scale of the worldwide problem and shining a light on some of the darkest aspects of maritime life. Ongoing support from Seafarers UK continues to play a part in the development of welcome new HRAS initiatives, alongside essential maintenance of key projects such as the Missing Seafarers & Fishers Reporting Programme. Sadly the need is undiminished for seafarers’ human rights to be respected wherever they may sail, and we would encourage others to join us in support of increased investment in the vital work of HRAS in 2018.”
Commodore Barry Bryant CVO RN, Director General, Seafarers UK
