Description:

The problem of piracy has begun to escalate in recent years. In modern times, this is a problem that is frequently conducted by organized crime or even governments, using sophisticated modern equipment. It is a very serious problem, as lives and livelihoods are frequently lost, at the hands of utterly callous criminals. This paper discusses the escalation in the number of acts of piracy and the effect it has on its victims. The paper also looks at how criminals are using modern technology and equipment to commit acts of piracy and how the international nature of the crime makes it more difficult to bring the problem under control.

From the Paper:

"The problem of piracy has begun to escalate in recent years. In modern times, this is a problem that is frequently conducted by organized crime or even governments, using sophisticated modern equipment. It is a very serious problem, as lives and livelihoods are frequently lost, at the hands of utterly callous criminals. As it is by definition a crime that takes place in international territory, it is an international crime. (Pike) This means that the crisis needs to be addressed by the international community - making it all the more challenging and complex to bring the situation under control."
