• The Common Law liability and negligence in the UK; the contractual law and P&I Cover on the crew. Since The ILO Maritime Labour Convention 2006 will be implemented in the UK, and most of the UK law comply already with this convention, the convention will be explained and the UK statutory law regarding the seafarer’s rights will be addressed by a cross reference at the end of this thesis.

• Direct action against the P&I Clubs in the UK in case of crew claims; the Pay to be paid rule, and the Direct Action (Rights Against Insurers) Act 1930 and 2010 will be explained.

• Piracy and P&I cover on the crew, what is it and to what extend the claims of the crew are covered by the P&I clubs (injury, illness, repatriation, substitution, the payment of ransom…)

• Criminalization of the seafarers; the reasons of this trend and the extend of the coverage of the P&I Clubs on the crew are analysed.

The focus will be on English Seafarers on board English registered ships. (Less)
