RAND study finds increase in piracy and terrorism at sea
Date:8/10/2008

pgrade global maritime security through such initiatives such as the Container Security Initiative and the International Ship and Port Facility Security Code, these measures are limited in scope and lack a definitive means to evaluate and audit their overall utility and transparency, Chalk said.

The study concludes that there are at least four policy-level contributions that U.S. policymakers can make to help better safeguard the world's oceans:

  • Expand the post-9/11 maritime security regime.

  • Inform maritime security collaboration by conducting regular, focused threat assessments.

  • Redefine the mandates of multilateral security arrangements to make sure they provide for a greater role in countering maritime threats.

  • Encourage the commercial maritime industry to make greater use of enabling communication and defensive technologies, while accepting more transparency in its corporate structures.
