Huge support for first IMHR Conference


Huge support from industry, government, NGOs, maritime charities and the Press indicates that next week’s inaugural ground-breaking International Maritime Human Rights Conference will make an indelible and long-lasting impression on all those who attend.

Hard-hitting and direct, it will draw global attention to the welfare of seafarers and their working conditions, exposing some of the vile abuses taking place every day at sea while attempting to find long-term, lasting solutions and remedies.

If you are involved in any way in shipping, the carriage of goods or people by sea, fishing or human rights, then it is imperative that you are aware of the subject matter that this conference will cover and advisable that you join the growing list of organisations already registered (see below).

Delegate passes for the conference and networking evening reception can be booked through the event website, click here.
