Human Rights at Sea first Erasmus Intern, Melanie Glodkiewicz, is currently offshore Libya undertaking her internship secondment to the German NGO, Sea-Watch. Melanie will be regularly posting her experiences and commentary of her experiences – www.hras-seawatch.org
My secondment to Sea-Watch has now started. I have joined the new crew for the next SAR operation in the Mediterranean.
