Chapter Summary

In the summer of 2007, the United States released a comprehensive policy for addressing piracy and armed robbery at sea. This document builds upon the National Security Strategy of the United States and National Strategy for Maritime Security. The policy is reflected in seven action items: (1) to prevent pirate attacks and other criminal acts of violence against US persons, vessels and interests; (2) to interrupt and terminate of acts of piracy consistent with international law; (3) to reduce vulnerability of maritime domain to such acts; (4) to ensure that those who commit acts of piracy are held accountable; (5) to preserve freedom of seas, including high seas freedoms; (6) to protect sea lines of communication; and, (7) to continue to lead and support international efforts to repress piracy combined, these policy actions represent a contemporary anti-piracy law and policy that captures our greatest interests in deterring and defeating piracy.
