Around Africa, the resurgence of piracy poses a clear threat to energy security and international trade, calling for multilateral action in the sea, the most unregulated part of the planet. This poses a number of diplomatic and security dilemmas, which are not as straightforwardly framed as onshore threats.
In cooperation with the University of Plymouth, the Tactics Institute for Security and Counter-Terrorism presents the first webinar of its Maritime Security Series on Modern Piracy. Considering the evolution of this phenomenon over the last decade, Tactics speaks to:
• Dr Stavros Karamperides, Lecturer in Maritime Economics, and Programme Manager of the MSc course in International Logistics and Shipping programmes at the University of Plymouth, and.
• Dr Fotios Moustakis, Associate Professor of Strategic Studies and Director of Dartmouth Centre for Sea Power and Strategy at the University of Plymouth.
The webinar is chaired by Tactics Institute's Commissioning Editor, Eleni Panayiotou.
