Sea-Watch Legal Team is looking for voluntary support
Sea-Watch e.V. is a non-profit initiative dedicated to the civil sea rescue of refugees. In view of the humanitarian disaster in the central Mediterranean Sea-Watch provides emergency aid, demands and at the same time forces the rescue by the responsible European institutions and publicly stands up for legal escape routes. We are politically and religiously independent and are financed exclusively by donations.
We, the Legal Team, are one of the departments of Sea-Watch e.V. We deal with all sorts of legal questions in the area of SAR and bring different experiences of multiple fields of law together. We support the organisation in specific projects as well as in daily tasks.
The organisation and, accordingly, the challenges are growing constantly. Therefore, we as well are in need of further active support. For this purpose we are looking for people with a degree in law and the motivation to engage in the field of sea rescue. To move the work forward effectively, it would be good, you would be available approx. ten hours per week. Due to our national as well as cross-border engagement fluent english and basic german skills are required.
As we are committed to an inclusive society without racism and with freedom of movement for all, we particularly welcome applications from women*, LGBTQI, BIPoC, people with disabilities, people with migration background and people from other groups under-represented in seafaring and the legal world. You are welcome to refrain from using application photos and information about age and marital status.
