Content available remote Technological Advances and Efforts to Reduce Piracy
The technological contributions to the reduction of piracy not only involve implementations of recent technological advances, but, importantly, the dissemination of the education required to apply current and future technologies, particularly in those states in the regions where piracy is rampant. To this end, the EU’s MARSIC project, with the stated aim of enhancing security and safety in the Gulf of Aden and the western Indian Ocean through ‘..information sharing and capacity building, (and) highlighting regional coop-eration’ (Marsic 1st monitoring report, 2010) has recently been inaugurated. The Faculty of Maritime Studies and Transport of the University of Ljubljana, and the Maritime University of Szczecin, as partners in this pro-ject, will bring to bear both the most advanced technological applications to maritime affairs of satellite im-agery, simulation, and risk assessment, and guarantee their utility through the transfer of knowledge. In Yem-en and Djibouti, maritime stations will be established, personnel trained, and a sustainable level of expertise eventually left in place. Interest in such projects has also been expressed by maritime experts in Tanzania and Kenya. The advantage this approach has over other donor-supported solutions begins with regional involve-ment and an inclusive approach, its ultimate success to a large degree dependant on factors external to the project such as financial incentives for the nations of the region to protect European and Far East Asian ship-ping. The project is closely coordinated with a parallel EU-funded project executed by European Commis-sion’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) on maritime surveillance technologies application in the region.
This paper constitutes an effort to substantiate whether there are certain nationalities of crews which are for ethnic and / or cultural reasons more (or less) vulnerable to fall victims of Pirates off Somalia. Such groups (if there are any) in effect indirectly ‘support’ Somali piracy and for this reason they are being re-ferred to throughout the paper as “Passively Supportive Crews”. The method (and the rational) in use within this paper is straightforward. Over a three and a half year period (2007 – June/2010) an analysis is being conducted of all the reported (to the I.M.O. and I.M.B.) attacks in the region off Somalia. The analysis focuses on the crew composition of the attacked vessels with special interest cast upon those Ships (meaning the crews) which eventually succumbed to the pirates and were in the end seajacked.
Piracy in the Gulf of Aden region became a real threat at the beginning of the 21st century for the safety of transport in the region. For these reasons, the international community have taken preventive ac-tions and developed measures to be applied to fight piracy and increase safety in the region. These multilat-eral activities are based both on international efforts to improve the political situation in Somalia, where pirates have their bases, as well as the introduction of certain practices and procedures to combat piracy in the Gulf of Aden region.
Content available remote Influence of Pirates' Activities on Maritime Transport in the Gulf of Aden Region
Modern piracy is one of the items appearing on the seas, which has a great impact on maritime transport in many regions of the world. Changes that happened at the end of XX and beginning of XXI centu-ry became significant in the renaissance of piracy. The problem is present in many parts of the world but it become a real threat in year 2008 around a small country of Somalia and in the area called the Horn of Africa especially in the region of Gulf of Aden. Because international waters are very important for maritime transport so pirates’ attacks have great influence over this transport and on international community.
Nowadays it is obvious that maritime transport is the core element of word economy so each disturbance in the world shipping can create more or less serious problems for world economy, especially now when the world crises appeared. The piracy activities showed that shipping safety in the Gulf of Aden and waters around the Somalia should be considered as an international problem. The Somali piracy has complex reasons, so it is not easy to provide safety of shipping in this region without wide spectrum of action and international cooperation. The paper presents analyze of piracy root in Somalia, the development of piracy activities and steps of international community which should be taken to provide safety and secure shipping in this region.
