MediMARE GAMES are a series of games related to the project’s main issues in order to promote the knowledge and reflection about maritime disputes and mediation.
The MediMARE team has produced 3 games available for everyone:
In this game,the player will be able to think about Deviation.
Deviation is when a ship changes its route due to justifiable causes, such as saving lives, supporting another ship in danger or without justifiable cause. Deviation may lead to a delay in the contract deadlines. Unjustified deviation is a fundamental breach of contract and the charterer has the right to elect to terminate the contract.
In this game, the player will be able to think about a cargo damaged situation.
When damage is caused to the cargo that was in a container, it is important to define legal liability for loss or damage to goods between all transport members in a Combined Transport or Through Transport Operation. Sometimes it is hard to define when the damage happened since the container is closed during the transportation.
In this game, the player will be able to think about Incoterms.
Incoterms (International Commercial Terms) are contractual terms elaborated by the ICC and that sellers and buyers incorporate into their international contracts for determining the obligations of the parties regarding the transportation costs and responsibility, where goods will be delivered (and thus where the obligation of the seller ends), insurance and export costs (taxes, declarations and other import and export obligations). The incorrect use of the Incoterms in the contract may lead to mistaken obligations / responsibilities of the Parties. Examples being who bears the risk of loss or damage to the goods while in transit, or who is responsible to pay for international transportation.
