- A secure https:// page.
The new site offers core sections covering:

Detail and web links to our “Supporting Entities and Collaborative Partners” worldwide.
- An “Archive” section.
- A “Resources” section for government, business, academic and individual research.
- An “Internships” section outlining the need, requirement and process for applications, as well as details of any currently available internships.

The HRAS Founder, David Hammond, said: “It has now been 6 months since the launch of the initiative and we are delighted that we continue to see widening international engagement with our work. As a result, and as part of planned investment into the HRAS platform, the new website provides us with a revised, secure and well-built platform in support of our future plans“.
Existing users of the www.humanrightsatsea.wordpress.com will continue to receive news feeds for the imminent future, but which will now be hosted on the main HRAS site.
