SafeSeas in collaboration with project partners from the Security Institute for Governance and Leadership in Africa (SIGLA) at the University of Stellenbosch will hold a workshop on ‘Maritime Security Capacity Building: Towards Best Practices’ in November.
The primary objective of this workshop is to discuss the drafts of the book chapters that present the core outcomes of the project SafeSeas. The goal is to improve the drafts, but also to cross-fertilize insights gained from each case study in order to distil best practices. The workshop will also identify areas of future collaboration and the potential of expanding the SafeSeas project.
The SafeSeas book will be the first to study recent attempts of restructuring maritime security sectors through a focus on the Western Indian Ocean region. It is designed to be a vital resource for scholars interested in international assistance, security sector reform, peacebuilding or statebuilding, as well practitioners involved in the design, implementation or evaluation of maritime security.
