According to the International Convention of Safety of Life at Sea (SOLAS) and the International Convention on Maritime Search and Rescue anyone rescued at sea should be brought to a ”place of safety”. In the thesis the author examines the meaning of the concept ”place of safety” against the background that many of those rescued at sea are refugees and migrants .
