Human Rights at Sea partners with Marlins on e-learning

UK-based charity Human Rights at Sea (HRAS) is to work with maritime training provider Marlins on the development of a new e-learning course on the rescue of migrants at sea.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The new course, entitled ‘Humanitarian Response’, aims to provide students with an understanding of the reasons why migrants and refugees choose a sea route, and suggestions for planning and preparing ship and crew for possible involvement in large scale rescue operations.

“Whilst the rescue of migrants and trafficked people at sea seemingly represents an unwelcome additional burden to an overstretched shipping industry, the legal and moral obligations cannot be ignored,” said David Hammond, founder of Human Rights at Sea.

“The issue is no longer an exception, but may well become a norm as the migrant flows continue north through Africa and from the Middle East.”

“This new and important training provides officers, crew and companies with up-to-date information to help prepare for an encounter with migrants and trafficked people in danger at sea requiring the duty to render assistance to be undertaken by commercial vessels. HRAS is pleased to be involved in its development and delivery.”{/mprestriction}
