Beginning the final countdown to the first ever event to focus on maritime human rights, organisers continue to showcase a top line up of speakers and experts participating in the International Maritime Human Rights Conference (IMHR), taking place on 14 September, at the Royal College of Surgeons, London.

With an exceptional conference programme focusing on addressing the issues surrounding human rights and welfare at sea, IMHR will bring together global maritime industry leaders and world-renowned human rights advocates, with the aim to explore topical and emerging human rights matters, and investigate human rights protections and available remedies for abuses.

The event will examine the latest and most topical subject matters including; the need for explicit engagement with human rights at sea, the fishing community, seafarer welfare, gender and diversity, refugees & migrants, the UN Guiding Principles on Human Rights, and investigation of human rights abuses; and will deliver incisive commentary and concepts to delegates for consideration and debate.
