Chapter Summary

The information regarding the development of legal approaches in the International Labour Organisation (ILO) since 1919, and the account of the tripartite process, are especially relevant to understanding why the Maritime Labour Convention (MLC), 2006 has been described, inter alia, as a marriage of the traditional and the new, innovative, and a veritable accomplishment in international regulatory policy. This chapter examines the substantive content of the MLC, 2006 provisions and considers the structural and other design-related approaches in the MLC, 2006. The MLC, 2006 was expected to develop new obligations related to, inter alia, enforcement of its standards at the shipboard level and to address in more concrete ways other contemporary concerns such as security for shipowners' liability for seafarers' repatriation, health care, and abandonment. Finally the chapter provides an account of the history of the development of the final format of the MLC, 2006 text.
