Advocating for better cooperation to improve protection at sea
In addition to responding operationally to the growing number of refugees and migrants crossing seas to save their lives and seek a better future, ICMC advocates for increased protection at sea directly with governments and in different regional and international fora.
ICMC participates in high-level meetings on protection at sea at the United Nations in Geneva and New York, bringing forward the urgent need to organize life-saving interventions and adopt a comprehensive plan of action to address the problem on the longer term.
Supported by its European office in Brussels and the MADE Network, ICMC works with a number of governmental and non-governmental partners to raise awareness about the necessity to identify a response at the global level.
