counter piracy infrastructure

In September 2019, our research consultant Dr. Eric Frecon released a new opinion piece in The Jakarta Post on the emerging role that non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are playing in piracy and armed robbery research. As Asia's counter-piracy infrastructure strengthens, NGOs such as the Stable Seas are finding new grounds to further complement the efforts of regional governments. More information can be found in Dr. Frecon's article on how NGOs can offer the critical link between grassroots developments and policy-level initiatives in addressing piracy in the region.
