AbstractThis article is a critical reflection on the Protocol of 2005 to the Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts against the Safety of Maritime Navigation. It begins with an examination of the Convention for the Suppression of Unlawful Acts against the Safety of Maritime Navigation (SUA), including: the objectives of the regime, the manner in which these objectives are met, and where SUA has failed. The discussion then turns to the 2005 Protocol, concentrating on the reasons why it was necessary to update SUA, the provisions of the 2005 Protocol, the anti-trafficking instruments that preceded the 2005 Protocol, and an analysis of the anti-trafficking innovations that were adopted and excluded. The article concludes by examining the reasons why the 2005 Protocol has not been more widely ratified and briefly considers possible future directions for maritime anti-terrorism regimes.
