Contents Countering piracy in the modern era : notes from a RAND workshop to discuss the best approaches for dealing with piracy in the 21st century -- The current legal framework for countering piracy -- The economic burden imposed by piracy -- Anti-piracy off the Horn of Africa and the opportunities for interstate collaboration -- The wisdom of using armed contractors to protect shipping in the Gulf of Aden -- The extent to which industry talks as single voice in terms of maritime security -- How to confront piracy off the Horn of Africa
Summary In March 2009, the RAND Corporation convened a small group of experts from the U.S. government, allied partner nations, the maritime industry, and other academic organizations to discuss piracy in the modern era. The premise of the workshop was that reconsidering the underlying factors that drive maritime piracy in the 21st century might provide valuable insights to decisionmakers and policymakers into how best to address the problem within the wider context of fostering greater order at sea. This document summarizes the main points and conclusions that emerged from the workshop; it should serve as a useful resource to workshop participants as well as others interested in understanding the challenges associated with maritime disorder, violence at sea, and piracy in particular
