International Cooperation for Maritime Security

The strategic framework for enhancing international cooperation in the maritime domain is being addressed by a number of efforts. The central idea advanced is that no single nation has the ability to protect the maritime domain. The maritime nations of the world must work together in order to overcome the serious challenges posed by the predominant threat of terrorism. Over the past several years since the attack on the USS Cole, the Department of Defense has made significant progress in addressing the amorphous maritime threat that replaced the threat of the Soviet Union and its satellite states. Overall, the security of the maritime domain has become the focus of numerous individual states and international bodies and has evolved to reflect the new strategic environment and transnational terrorist threat. However much work needs to be done and this chapter describes some of the methods for preventing terrorist attacks at sea.
