Abstract:     
New international legal and policy frameworks have become the most effective force multiplier for developing maritime security and offer optimal approaches to counter piracy in the Horn of Africa. Piracy flourishes at the seams of globalization because jurisdiction is unclear, and pirates exploit the inherent isolation of individual vessels and nations. Regional powers in the Horn of Africa have underdeveloped law enforcement and judicial systems and suffer from a severe lack of resources. In this setting, developing legal and policy frameworks to enable those regional powers to build capacity for maritime security will be more effective than adding another warship to the equation. These efforts include four U.N. Security Council resolutions in 2008, and, perhaps even more promising, regional initiatives in the Horn of Africa that can establish a maritime security framework among states.
