Droit de la mer et protection internationale de l'individu

Abstract : Law of the sea and international human rights law strengthen each other. Law of the sea irrigates human rights by extending both the jurisdiction over which the state must guarantee human rights and the obligations that flow from it. Human rights humanizes law of the sea, strictly framing the police operations and means of war at sea. If these two rights fail to capture some dramatic maritime situations, it is more for lack of coordination and precision than for actual confrontation . Gaps in the law of the sea may indeed hinder the protection of human rights without creating a situation of conflict of norms. But above all, the fight against illegal immigration brings to light both the inadequacies of the law of the sea and human rights in what is at the heart of their intersection: the right to life and, the obligation to provide assistance at sea.
