About the Project
The Geneva Declaration on Human Rights at Sea confirms that human rights apply at sea as they do on land.
Initiated and conceived in February 2019 by Founder and CEO, David Hammond as a response to the ongoing systematic abuse of human rights at sea globally, the Geneva Declaration on Human Rights at Sea brings together existing international law into one document.
The Geneva Declaration gives practical guidance to states on how to ensure that human rights abuses at sea are detected, remedied, and ultimately ended. We are now working with individual states and the UN to promote the adoption of the Declaration.
