Fighting Piracy and International Public Goods: The Atalanta Experiment in the Horn of Africa V3
While piracy has been an old plague, its economic costs have increased enough in the Horn of Africa since the end of 1990s to push major countries to look for specific actions, either at national level or through coordinated missions. Maritime insecurity can then be analyzed as an “international public bad” requiring a collective solution. The conceptual framework of public goods appears useful to understand how to deal with piracy as well as identify the theoretical grounds to supply maritime security as an international public good. Such a theoretical framework then helps analyze more particularly the NAVFOR Atalanta mission. Even though this is not the only on-going operation, European Union’s mission appears as the most visible reaction against piracy on the high seas and it is fruitful to understand both benefits and limits of such collective action against piracy.
