Chapter Summary

This chapter is a narrative recounting of the sequence of events and concerns, as recalled by its author drawing on the reports of meetings that she attended and her continuing engagement with the development of the maritime labour convention (MLC), 2006 from its beginning. Certainly the period between 2001 and 2006 indelibly imprinted and shaped the lives of all who were engaged in the process to produce the major new international 'bill of rights'—the seafarers' representatives, the shipowners' representatives, key government representatives, and staff and advisors of the International Labour Office. The Joint Maritime Commission (JMC) discussed these three reports at its 29th Session in January 2001. The Shipowners' Members on the JMC indicated that this was the first time in its history that the JMC had considered a cycle of ILO maritime activities without having before it resolutions adopted at a previous Maritime Session of the ILC.
