The present work is a compilation of articles on the global issues, challenges and solutions pertaining to Maritime Security & Piracy. The highlight of the compilation is that these articles are gleaned from disparate sources of categories of writers such as Naval officials, officials in ministries of various governments, academicians, research scientists, victims of piracy, etc., which makes the work an utterly accomplished endeavour. The subject matter and its contents appeal to the global community, discussing the subject on a broad scale.
Anti-piracy efforts, laws and jurisdictions to combat piracy and Conventions held to discuss the problems and solutions of Piracy are detailed in the book. Important Seychelles Piracy cases such as “Topaz” case, “Intertuna II” case, “Galate” case, “Faith” case, “Talenduic” case, “Gloria” case and “Draco” case have been mentioned, providing a reference to the case study of piracy issues.
Highlighting the scourge of the ‘Somalian piracy’, the book stresses on the impact of piracy on the business and trade in an elaborative way. A separate topic has been devoted in the Indian context, titled, “India: concerns & initiatives towards resolving the crisis of piracy”, discussing the problems posed by piracy before India and what strategy India has adopted and should adopt to tackle the menace of piracy.
The compilation is an important contribution to the international law and the title itself becomes a ‘separate subject of study’, which is an innovative step towards the International Law field.
The work will be immensely useful to the legal scholars, academicians, students of international law, Judiciaries, naval officers and those interested in studying a genuine work on Global Maritime Security and Anti- Piracy.
