Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Piracy (external takeovers of vessels) can hardly be referred to as a new form of criminality. For centuries the threat of piracy has haunted sailors around the globe. From the shores of Asia to the islands of the Caribbean pirates have profited through the capture of merchant vessels. In recent months piracy has again emerged as an area of criminological interest as Somali pirates have begun to seize merchant and transport vessels travelling through the Gulf of Aden and the Indian Ocean. In 2008 Somali pirates hijacked more than 25 ships taking in millions of dollars in ransom (NYT September 30, 2008).This paper will explore the historical context of North African piracy and provide a discussion about the extent and impact of this renewed threat.
