Abstract

The European Union (EU) and its Member States have made great progress in improving marine security over the years. However, rather than protecting human rights at sea, these projects are primarily concerned with ship safety and environmental conservation. Despite the relevance of these actions, the author of this essay argues that attempts to incorporate marine human rights protection into increasing maritime safety have come to an end. The legal background review supports this argument, demonstrating that, in accordance with the human rights laws, Law of the Sea, , and European Union law, the EU and its member states have accepted the responsibility to protect human rights at sea as flag states, coastal states, or port states.
