At Human Rights at Sea we believe that  

Human rights apply at sea as they do on land.

The sea is not a lawless place and those who violate human rights should be held into account.

Educating the wider public and those who are responsible to protect people at sea will prevent abuses from happening and ensure an effective remedy for the victims and their families.

Abuses occur when good people turn a blind eye to bad things.

That it is time to end human rights abuses at sea and fight sea-blindness.
