About the Project
The Geneva Declaration on Human Rights at Sea confirms that human rights apply at sea as they do on land.
Conceived as a response to the ongoing systematic abuse of human rights at sea, the Declaration brings together existing international law into one document.
It gives practical guidance to states on how to ensure that human rights abuses at sea are detected, remedied, and ultimately ended. We are working with individual countries and the UN to promote the adoption of the Declaration.
The Declaration is open for public consultation until 1st September 2022, so please do let us know what you think.
