Piracy in Southeast Asia: Status, Issues, and Responses
Date of publication: 2005
Number of pages: 174
"Piracy in Southeast Asia seeks to provide a strong analysis of piracy in a Southeast Asian context by focusing on the characteristics and suppression of piracy. This book is a foundational volume that incorporates the combined work of eight authors and, in doing so, poses questions in a myriad of difficult issues related to modern piracy in Southeast Asia. These issues include international maritime law, sovereignty over territorial waters, nation state operational capabilities for piracy suppression, the role of shipping operators and insurers, the relationship between piracy and terrorism and the state of co-operation between nation states in piracy suppression. It is a concise and valuable resource for those interested in modern piracy and for future littoral conflicts in the arc of instability" (New Zealand International Review).
"Over the past decade piracy has re-emerged as a security concern for international shipping, particularly in Southeast Asia. With around 45% of the world's reported attacks, the region is frequently referred to as 'pirate-infested', and last year the Joint War Committee of Lloyd's of London declared the Malacca Straits a high-risk area, a term usually reserved for war zones. In recent years the scourge of piracy in Southeast Asia has attracted considerable attention, not only from government and security officials, but from scholars around the world. Written by prominent scholars in the field -- the book aims to identify the main pillars of a future agenda for research on modern piracy in Asian waters. The editors bring the issues together and lays out a path for future research, pointing to the 'geopolitics of piracy' and its criminology, as well as the possible link between piracy and maritime terrorism" (IIAS Newsletter).
About the Publication
Beyond providing a solid foundation for the analysis of maritime piracy in Southeast Asia, the book also gives considerable attention to the challenges of regional cooperation. It is indeed regional cooperation that can make a major impact on piracy if more effective collaboration can be negotiated.
The immediate practical challenge that emerges clearly from the contributions to this book is the need to continue to support initiatives to build trust and cooperation at the regional level in Southeast Asia.
