A Joint RUSI – Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime Roundtable

Thursday 12 November 2015, 14:00-17:00

Writing Room, RUSI, 61 Whitehall, London, SW1A 2ET

The naval response to Somali piracy has been seen as one of the key success stories for the militarised approach, and is now being proposed in other theatres, as well as for other crimes. Understanding the spectrum of responses, including the deployment of navies and armed contractors to protect shipping lanes, and the impact that these have on the responses of pirates is critical to understanding where best practices lie, and the scope for possible replication.
