In 2018, some 2,299 people are estimated to have died or gone missing at sea while crossing the sea to reach Europe to escape war or persecution or to pursue a better life. This is on average more than six people per day. Before mid-2017, a significant share of migrants in distress at sea have been rescued by civil society vessels deployed with a humanitarian mandate to reduce fatalities and bring rescued migrants to safety. In 2018, however, authorities in some Member States viewed civil society-deployed rescue vessels with hostility. As a reaction, they seized rescue vessels, arrested crew members, and initiated legal procedures against them (more than a dozen altogether). In some cases, rescue vessels were blocked in harbours due to flag issues.

Stadgan är en mycket modern katalog över mänskliga rättigheter. Den innehåller
många rättigheter som inte finns i andra etablerade förteckningar av det här slaget och ger ett gediget intryck. De som är bekanta med de viktigaste principerna
i EU-rätten kan vanligtvis snabbt redogöra för att stadgan alltid är bindande för EU
och endast bindande för medlemsstaterna när de ”tillämpar unionsrätten”. Men vad
betyder detta ofta citerade uttryck från artikel 51 i stadgan?
