Anti-Piracy conference in Brussels – Royal Military Academy

Conflict In Context - Field Notes Passport

I gave what I’m told was a great presentation about Somali piracy and “ruthless tactics of tourist kidnaps” at this anti-piracy conference held this time in Brussels.
Hope to share with the experts what happened to our community, how will military forces better protect international waters, as well as get an idea of what security problems to expect with the Lamu Port.
Will the presence of port and corresponding security keep away or attract more pirates? At the moment, I have an image of pirates drifting in their skiffs near entrance of the port like surfers waiting the next big wave.
