UK. Exploring the human rights at sea debate.
Human Rights at Sea is very pleased that Dr Sofia Galani, one of its Non- Executive Board of Advisors, gave an insightful academic presentation on January 23rd 2018 at the Bath Royal Literary and Scientific Institution on the topic of maritime security and human rights, where she explored the ‘human rights at sea’ debate and its developments over the past years following various human rights violations that have occurred at sea.
In particular, Sofia addressed the legal and practical challenges of human rights protections at sea and explored ways in which such protections can be strengthened.
The talk that was positively received from the audience, was given at the Bath Literary and Scientific Institution as part of their events on the World Affairs series on the theme ‘Oceans’.
