Countering Maritime Piracy
Editor: Prof. Alexander Yankov
Judge, International Tribunal for the Law of the Sea

Surprisingly to many, in the beginning of the Twenty First Century maritime piracy is on the surge. Notwithstanding the developments of sensor, information and communications technologies, commercial maritime traffic remains vulnerable to pirate attacks. Pirates utilize relatively simple technologies, but still manage to exploit vulnerabilities in legal, organizational, and operational arrangements.

To address the challenge of maritime piracy, the I&S Editorial Board, jointly with the Transport Policy network, (, is announcing this Call for Papers to address legal, organizational, procedural and technological aspects of maritime piracy, as well as its root causes.

We will welcome also contributions on methods and tools for:
- Identification of vulnerabilities
- Increased situational awareness
- Enhanced command and control
- Novel concepts of operation
- Capabilities to prevent, deter, defend against, respond to, and manage the consequences of acts of piracy.

Interested authors may submit their papers, as well as related book reviews, Web sites and other related initiatives to the I&S Managing Editor,
