Taiwan’s offshore fishing industry is rich in output value, and ranks among the top in the world. In pursuit of higher profits, ship owners often register their vessels in different countries. These “FOC” vessels have become the exceptional zone of law, and the foreign fishermen on the ships become vulnerable to human trafficking, forced labor and other crises. Therefore, the regulation of non-flag states vessels has become an important issue to resolve the human rights crisis at sea. Although FOC vessels do not fly the flag of Taiwan, after these ships enter the port, Taiwan, as a port state, still has legal measures to intervene. In the first workshop of the theme series ” Law, Human right and Transnational Labor Mobility”, Asst. Prof. Ming-Hao Yang will give an insight into Taiwan’s possible solutions to the human rights crisis on FOC vessels.
