Since the world's oceans are largely unregulated spaces, they are particularly vulnerable to the attacks by maritime pirates. we all know that the maritime piracy and terrorism present a very serious threat to the international maritime shipping industry and they are normally combined, going together in most cases.
The maritime piracy itself is considered a marginal issue; however we shall say that the piracy taken together with the wide criminal networks and also with the corruption makes it even more threatening.
The content of the present study report is fully devoted to the contemporary piracy and is intended to provide all participants of the shipping industry with the information that could help them in getting better understanding of the current situation.
The two opening chapters of the publication provide brief introduction to the piracy and terrorism; they are followed by the chapter dealing with the threat assessment, where the author tells readers about the current maritime disorder and what initiatives are there to tackle it. The cooperation between terrorists and criminal world is addressed within a separate part of the book. Particular attention has been paid to the maritime insurgency and many other aspects considered important by the author.
