Description: This book concerns the regime and practice of the granting of refuge in a port or other safe haven, i.e.,a place of refuge, to a ship that is in need of assistance. A ship may need assistance in various situations, and sometimes that assistance may be provided to the ship while it is at sea, such as when a seriously ill or injured seafarer on-board needs to be airlifted to receive medical treatment in a hospital. Occasionally, there are situations where the safety of the ship itself is at stake as a result of stress of weather, force majeure or an urgent necessity. Perhaps the ship has received salvage assistance, and the salvor is instructed and obligated to take the stricken ship to a safe place. In such situations it is imperative for the ship to seek and enter the closest safe haven. When a ship seeks refuge, in all cases it will be for exceptional reasons in exceptional situations. The place of refuge is not normally the intended destination of the ship.
