Calls/Events: The Protection of Vulnerable People at Sea

The Institute of International Shipping and Trade Law is inviting abstract submissions for a one-and-a-half-day in-person workshop, funded by the Society of Legal Scholars. The event is to be held from 17 May to 18 May 2023 at Swansea University, Wales (U.K.). A first aim of the workshop is to reflect on the existing international legal framework applicable to the protection of vulnerable people at sea, to identify any gaps and deficiencies contained therein. Connected to this, the workshop will explore how such gaps and weaknesses in the two main branches of the law relating to the protection of vulnerable people at sea (i.e., human rights law and the law of the sea) could be remedied. The deadline for submitting abstracts (250 words maximum) is 20 March 2023. More information is available here.
