ABSTRACT

Maritime Security Report [October 1998]   [open pdf - 3MB]

The purpose of this Maritime Security Report is to serve as a concept paper toward development of such a subsidiary strategy, one specifically tailored to address international crime's impact on port and cargo security. The elements of a subsidiary strategy proposed in this report include a goal to substantially improve port and cargo security in the international maritime trade corridors. The goal has three objectives: (1) Facilitate the flow of international maritime commerce unimpeded by the direct or indirect consequences of transnational criminal activity; (2) Maximize the engagement of the commercial maritime industry in a multinational cooperative effort with government; and (3) Maintain secure maritime trade corridors using tools for systemic reevaluation, accountability, and effective response. Supporting the goal and objectives are basic principles, four approaches, and examples of best practices for accomplishing a strategy.
