Lessons Learned discussed at maritime security event in Addis Ababa

The Friedrich Ebert Foundation organized a seminar on “African Approaches to Maritime Security: The AU and Continental Perspective” from June 16th to 17th. The workshop brought together a range of African maritime security scholars and policy analysts to evaluate the state of maritime security on the continent and to identify priorities for implementing the new African maritime security strategies and projects such as the Djibouti or the Yaounde Code of Conduct. The LLC participated in the event and outlined the lessons from counter-piracy and how they can inform the implementation of the maritime security strategies. What became clear during the event is that Africa requires a network of maritime security experts, similar to the expert networks that the CGPCS  working groups created and maintained.
