The Lessons Learned Project is delighted to announce the publication, by the EU ISS (a partner member of the CGPCS Lessons Learned Consortium), of the following report, Fighting piracy off the coast of Somalia. The report represents one of the core outputs of the Lessons Learned Project and makes a major contribution to one of the main priorities of the 2014 EU Chairmanship of the CGPCS: to adequately document the lessons learned from the Contact Group.
In this report, the EUISS has brought together a number of authors who have been involved in the CGPCS from the outset to document the genesis and evolution of the Contact Group since its inception in 2009. These contributions offer an overview of the work of the Contact Group and illustrate the road the CGPCS stakeholders have travelled together as well as the manner in which the international counter-piracy strategy has evolved.
