Piracy and the Maritime Commons

Captain Jeff Kline, USN (ret.); Director, Maritime Defense and Security Programs, Naval Postgraduate School

Despite the international response in supplying war ships to patrol the Gulf of Aden and eastern Somali approaches, pirate attacks have increased. Ungoverned spaces in the maritime commons invite threats to free use of the seas in Nigeria, Southeast Asia and the Indian Ocean. Kline will describe the state of piracy, discuss conditions where piracy and other threats flourish, and offer a framework for better security.
