Human Rights at Sea today launches its innovative Legal Research Programme as part of the expanding charitable work published through its online maritime human rights platform.
Established earlier this month, the Legal Research programme provides a free public platform for seafarers, fishers and students from around the world to showcase their academic work in tackling maritime human rights issues that are important to the charity, and that are in support of the charity’s charitable objectives.
Led by the headline of: “You Choose – You Research – We Publish – We Promote”, the charity will highlight the topics and areas to be researched. A topic is chosen by a person who has an interest in that area. They research that topic undertaking legal review, drafting and analysis before submission to the charity. The charity will review the submitted material and if accepted, will publish it through the Legal Research Programme platform for international dissemination and review. The author(s) will be fully credited.
