New publication addresses how counter-piracy governance can be theorized

In an article published with the European Journal of International Relations, Prof Christian Bueger, investigates how the cooperation in counter-piracy off the coast of Somalia can be theorized. Investigating the making of the Best Management Practices and the controversy around the High Risk Area – two of the core devices of counter-piracy – he argues that assemblage theory spurs important insights on how cooperation works in practice. The article in particular highlights the advantages and disadvantages of deformalized politics and working with best practices. The article is titled “Territory, Authority, Expertise: Global Governance and the Counter-Piracy Assemblage”, and available as online first: doi: 10.1177/1354066117725155.
