Capacity building is a broad concept with no clear definition. It is also a buzzword of International Politics. At SafeSeas we are interested in the practice of capacity as a diverse activity that goes beyond immediate maritime security concerns and is part of the broader picture of maritime governance.
But, how can these practices be captured? A new concept note just published lays out the SafeSeas framework for gathering data on maritime security capacity building and capturing the experience of actors involved in capacity building. It is structured around a number of core questions and indications of data initially available for desk research.
