    About the book

    Maritime security has increasingly been studied from the standpoint of the complexities of the ocean—where the ‘game’ has been played since ancient days. In recent years, however, the concept has undergone a sea change. Today, and seemingly so in future, maritime security has to be seen as complementary to overall national security, and not as a standalone concept.

    Within this framework, maritime security acquires myriad dimensions. One such dimension deals with establishing the ‘Rule of Law’ at sea. This book critically examines the perceived ‘unlawful’ activities that enforcers may come across at sea. It addresses the following themes:
    Crime at sea
    Smuggling and Trafficking
    Environmental crimes
    Future of unlawful activities at sea

    This book would be useful to scholars; policy makers; military, intelligence and enforcement agencies; the corporate sector; seafarers; the media; and students of national security strategy.
