Abstract:Historically, Africa's strategic outlook has been continental - there has been a tradition of neglect of the seas surrounding it. This neglect has led to a general lack of jurisdiction and enforcement capacity to secure safety in Africa's littoral waters. Particularly in coastal states suffering from political instabilities, illegal, criminal and subversive groups of various kinds and backgrounds have been able to expand their activities to offshore areas. This collective volume draws attention to the sharp rise of maritime insecurity in Africa's oceans. The book focuses on achieving good order at sea, viewing the piracy experience as a learning opportunity. Issues addressed include aspects of private security, the position of landlocked countries, coastal development, regional cooperation and the importance of leadership.
