ABSTRACT

Sexual Misconduct on Merchant Ships of the United States [October 28, 2021]   [open pdf - 563KB]

From the Background: "In 1988, the Government Accountability Office studied sexual assaults of female seafarers and recommended a requirement for the Coast Guard to be notified of these incidents (see 46 U.S.C. [United States Code] §10104). Starting in 2009, Congress has addressed sexual assault during seafarer training with specific legislation (see P.L. [Public Law] 110-417, §3507). Since 2014, the Department of Transportation Inspector General has issued three reports regarding sexual assault at the United States Merchant Marine Academy (USMMA)."
