Video: Maritime Security Series 1/3; Modern Piracy in Context

In cooperation with the University of Plymouth, Tactics Institute for Security and Counter-Terrorism presents the first episode of its Maritime Security Series, which focuses on modern piracy. The question considered in the series is: how do we understand piracy in the 21st century?

Tactics spoke with Dr Stavros Karamperidis, Lecturer in Maritime Economics, and Programme Manager of the MSc course in International Logistics and Shipping programmes at the University of Plymouth. Dr Karamperidis discusses where piracy began and patterns of geographic dispersion of the phenomenon, addressing the question of the impact of this form of organised crime on the shipping industry.
