The New Barbary Wars

Dr. Brandon Prins and his co-authors assess the threat of modern day piracy in this policy brief. ┬áThe authors note that the “…collapse of the global security umbrellas characteristic of Cold War power dynamics has meant that maritime security around small, weak states virtually does not exist. The Howard H. Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy has prepared this Policy Brief to survey the history of maritime piracy, explain the drivers of its recent resurgence as a global security threat, evaluate the success of recent antipiracy measures, and suggest some policy tools that may be more effective at curtailing the lure of such brigandry.”
