Maritime Security in Africa Potential for Public-Private Partnerships – 03/12/2014
While piracy has drawn the media’s attention, maritime security is much more all-encompassing. Africa in particular has seen many discussions about maritime security issues in recent years and various documents have been signed on the regional and continental level. Translating good intentions into practice, however, will take time. Short-term capability gaps will have to be addressed much sooner; private maritime security companies could play an important role.
This master class will provide insights into maritime security challenges in African coastal states, explain political developments and highlight two case studies. It will focus on the potential for partnerships between national governments and private maritime security companies to address capability gaps in the maritime domain.
The target audience are representatives from the private maritime security industry, regulatory and certification bodies as well as national governments and international organisations.
