ABSTRACT
This study focuses on trends in maritime piracy in the Gulf of Aden in the period 2009-2012. My research examines core actors and their activities and the corresponding responses of local and international authorities. This work is based on analytical monitoring conducted over the same period. The point of this work is to illustrate the projection of Somali pirates from beyond their "traditional" waters and how this is impacting regional - and with it, international - security.
