ABSTRACT
While piracy is an age-old crime, it has recently re-emerged in different forms off the Coast of Somalia, in the Gulf of Guinea, and through the international straits of Indonesia. Acts of piracy surged off the Somali Coast of Somalia between 2008 and 2011 and began to decline over the past year. However, while piracy may have begun its decline off the Coast of Somalia, it is now growing steadily elsewhere, including on the East Coast of Africa in the Gulf of Guinea, Indonesia, and Malaysia. This article discusses these current global trends in piracy. It also describes successful efforts that the international community has used to combat piracy off the Coast of Somalia, and assesses whether these efforts can be exported to other piracy hotbeds around the world.
