Geneva Declaration on Human Rights at Sea Drafting Team Update
London. UK. The Geneva Declaration on Human Rights at Sea, together with its Annexes, is currently in the final stages of drafting for publication. The Declaration is a soft-law instrument that highlights the applicable rules and standards to be maintained in defence of fundamental human rights at sea. It reflects existing law and, importantly, does not attempt to generate any new legal obligations for States. It is intended, therefore, as a guide to enhance compliance with the law as it stands deliberately focusing on practical means of applying Human Rights standards throughout the maritime environment.
