Piracy - A Modern Perspective
AbstractThis article considers the various definitions of piracy and how they inter-relate or complement each other. It also critically analyses the international law definition, particularly in its modern context. Finally, this article focuses on piracy in South East Asia, measures taken to control piracy in the region and suggests further action which can be taken to reduce the incidents of piracy in South East Asia and in other regions throughout the world where piracy is endemic.
