Beyond Piracy: Somalia’s Maritime Security in 2016
Piracy in the Indian Ocean has seen a marked decline since 2013 due to the combined impact of multi-national naval patrols, the implementation of best management practices by commercial shipping and progress in institution-building in Somalia. But to maintain these gains, and to combat other forms of maritime crime, including illegal unregulated fishing and smuggling, requires continued sustained efforts by Somalia and its international partners to tackle its fragile economy and governance structures.
At this event, speakers will discuss national and international naval and political efforts to secure Somalia’s waters in the long-term.
This event is in partnership with Oceans Beyond Piracy.
