Maritime Security in Africa - Potential for Public-Private Partnerships

A session at Maritime Security in Africa - Potential for Public-Private Partnerships

Following from its successful conference series, SMi Group are proud to introduce its masterclass taking place on 3rd December 2014 in Central London.

While piracy has drawn the media's attention, maritime security is much more all-encompassing. Africa in particular has seen many discussions about maritime security issues in recent years and various documents have been signed on the regional and continental level. Translating good intentions into practice, however, will take time. Short-term capability gaps will have to be addressed much sooner; private maritime security companies could play an important role.

The Masterclass will be hosted by:

Dirk Siebels, PhD Candidate, Greenwich Maritime Institute

The Greenwich Maritime Institute offers postgraduate and research degrees in maritime security, policy and history. Located in the Old Royal Naval College, the institute is located in the heart of Britain's maritime heritage and naval tradition. It maintains close links with the maritime industry in London and around the globe and it is one of the best places worldwide to study marine or maritime matters.

Why You Need to Attend:

This master class will provide insights into maritime security challenges in African coastal states, explain political developments and highlight two case studies. It will focus on the potential for partnerships between national governments and private maritime security companies to address capability gaps in the maritime domain.

The target audience are representatives from the private maritime security industry, regulatory and certification bodies as well as national governments and international organisations.
