Chapter Summary

This section of the book Places of Refuge for Ships: Emerging Environmental Concerns of a Maritime Custom contains a list of contributors. The book concerns the regime and practice of the granting of refuge in a port or other safe haven, i.e., a place of refuge, to a ship that is in need of assistance. A ship may need assistance in various situations, and sometimes that assistance may be provided to the ship while it is at sea, such as when a seriously ill or injured seafarer on-board needs to be airlifted to receive medical treatment in a hospital. The modern day considerations of the refuge custom are multi-perspective, and consequently the multidisciplinary approach of the book is justified.

Keywords: places of refuge; seafarers
