A map of the ILO’s seafarer abandonment database, with additional information on companies taken from the IMO Web Accounts database. Last updated: 12/11/2020
This map shows the extent of the problem of seafarer abandonment. It uses the active, inactive, and resolved cases of the International Labour Organisation’s database, with information on companies coming from the International Maritime Organisation’s database. It also maps cases not picked up by the ILO, which have been found from reporting and journalism on the issue.
Please note that:
The map is updated every month. If you would like access to the spreadsheets we have built from the database, please fill in the contact form at the bottom of this page.
