Piracy-studies.org is a platform that has published commentaries on contemporary maritime piracy and maritime security from 2010 to 2017. In these years over 80 blog posts were published from authors around the world. These widely read commentaries addressed recent developments on piracy and the global response to it, as well as questions of maritime security strategy, blue economy and blue justice, but also documented the results of events and conferences. Piracy-studies.org also published a regularly updated bibliography on contemporary piracy.
With piracy-studies.org closed for submission, the SafeSeas network is taking over the archive of the platform. While URLs will remain stable to ensure access, SafeSeas is republishing these posts in its archive.
In the coming months we will re-publish a series of the best blogs from piracy-studies.org.
The same time, we also want to continue the spirit of piracy-studies.org, that is, to offer a platform for maritime security researchers to make research accessible to a wide international audience and to publish commentaries on research outcomes, current policy developments or recent maritime security related events.
We invite contributions of a length of 500-800 words. Please contact Scott Edwards for submissions.
