Notes and Changes

This is an external event.

Middlesex University (London), the Italian legal clinic CLEDU (Clinica Legale per i Diritti Umani) and the UK legal organisation AIRE Centre (Advice on Individual Rights in Europe) are working together to take forward the debate by holding a roundtable on the positive legal obligations of EU member states under international maritime law, EU law and national law towards migrants, asylum seekers and persons in distress at sea. It will include a thorough analysis of relevant rules and instruments of international maritime law adopted by EU member states, as well as a discussion of their different interpretations and implementations. The event aims to lead to a common, informed position paper, outlining the legal obligations of different stakeholders when dealing with migrants at sea. To download the full programme click here.
