Chapter Summary

The central theme of this book is the international response to Somali piracy. This concluding chapter returns to the two main questions that were posed in the introduction: how do actors with different nationalities interact when responding to Somali piracy, and what are the prospects for greater international cooperation? In discussing these two questions, the chapter adopts a practical perspective on a number of issues that are relevant to fighting piracy, or at least to limiting the damage it causes. These issues are ultimately also relevant for the international level, either directly or indirectly. The mechanisms for international interaction most often referred to in the book are the Contact Group on Piracy off the Coast of Somalia (CGPCS), the Shared Awareness and Deconfliction meetings (SHADE) in Bahrain, and the Internationally Recommended Transit Corridor (IRTC). The issue of cooperation at the governmental level has been the central focus of the book.
