PIRACY AND ARMED ROBBERY AT SEA OFF EAST AFRICA – EU REPORT

On 19th March, the EU Parliament Research Service published a briefing paper which focuses on maritime piracy and armed robbery at sea.  It examines the legal aspects and societal implications of these forms of violence.  Maritime piracy and armed robbery off the African coast are also a threat for the EU’s security and economy.  Since 2008, the EU has been implementing a maritime security strategy (MSS) via distinct regional strategies in the Gulf of Aden and the Gulf of Guinea.
