Here is another publication written about working with Filipino seafarers. The book starts with some introduction followed by a chapter describing the migration issues, namely different perspectives on migration. In the next part of the book the author tries to understand and explain to the readers why people go to the sea and who are leaving - here you will find the info on the inducements and preconditions for migration. The following part is dedicated to the life and work at sea - you will get to know what exactly characterizes a vessel, get a portion of the seafaring experience, etc. The last three chapters of the publication address the cultural repercussions that may be caused by the life and work at sea, various economic repercussions that may be caused by overseas employment, and, finally, the Filipino seamen. This document was prepared by Gunnar Lamwik from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and may be of some interest for those who work with the crew members from Filipinos as it contains some valuable advice on how to build the good relationship and communication system for everyone's benefit. In fact, most of the information would be equally to the seamen from any other country.
