Maritime Work Watch / MWW is an exciting new academic project, which has developed out of collaboration between a group of European researchers with a shared interest in maritime labour. As experts in labour law we have spent much of our careers analysing the living and working conditions of seafarers and other workers who carry out their work in a maritime context.
This Research Network, coordinated by Prof. Olga Fotinopoulou Basurko (University of the Basque Country) was created in 2015, with the financial support of Spanish Ministry of Economy and Competitiveness (MINECO) in the context of National Programme for fostering Excellence in Scientific and Technical Research.
The Maritime Work Watch/MWW Research Network members have a strong scientific background in the issues addressed by the team, as for example, the seafarers’ or fishermen living and working conditions or, also, the labour conditions of workers employed on yatching, as well as, in port services.
The different research areas developed by researchers integrated in the MWW have been subject of many research projects financed by national or European research institutions. Also, we have organized several seminars, workshops and congresses to discuss deeply about the above mentioned shared interest issues.
Maritime Work Watch / MWW is a research network open to incorporate new researchers interested on maritime work issues.
