Abstract

When the fate of migrants at sea is discussed, it is common for the implementation of international law to be invoked as a remedy. The present paper interrogates some of the assumptions about the value of international law that lie behind this. What is at stake in viewing international law as a solution to current challenges relating to migrants at sea?
