What are the security implications of maritime infrastructures? How do they structure and govern the oceans and what kind of protection do they need? SAFESEAS is affiliated with a new research group that addresses these questions drawing on our research on submarine data cable protection
Under this project we investigate the maritime security of the UK, the consequences of Brexit and strategy making in the country. We cooperate closely with officials and professionals in the UK.
We work towards creating resources for education and training on maritime security to enhance understanding of security at sea.
The primary goal of this project was to identify best practices for maritime security capacity building drawing on the experiences in the Western Indian Ocean. The project ran from 2017 to 2018. Its main outcome was a best practice toolkit.
SafeSeas publishes initial research results and forthcoming articles as working papers.
