About this book

This book examines the nexus between maritime security and the ‘blue economy’ in sub-Saharan Africa. In recent years, maritime security issues have received increasing attention, but academic and policy-related discussions are largely limited to counter-piracy operations and, to a smaller extent, problems related to illegal fishing. This project offers an essential addition to the current academic and political discourse, combining a broad range of statistics with primary research and findings from more than 40 interviews with key stakeholders. It provides a unique analysis, recognizing that maritime security is not an end in itself but rather linked to economic and immaterial benefits of a more secure environment at sea.

Reviews

“In this century more than ever, the maritime governance discourse requires useful tools that point states and other actors in the best possible direction. This is what Dirk has done. He has not discussed maritime security in abstract: this book perfectly examines the critical linkages between good ocean governance, investment and durable maritime security outcomes.” (Kamal-Deen Ali, Captain Ghana Navy (Rtd.) and Executive Director CEMLAWS Africa, Ghana)

“The author skillfully presents a detailed, balanced and coherent account of contemporary maritime security, regional cooperation and the blue economy in two distinct regions of Africa with wider relevance for policy makers and practitioners alike.” (Robert McCabe, Assistant Professor, Coventry University, UK)
