Abstract:   (895 Views)
More than 90% of the world’s trade is done by merchant ship lines and their security is very important. Piracy is term used to describe violent acts carried out by terrorists and pirates at sea. Intelligence analysts, law enforcement officials, and policymakers have become increasingly concerned about the possibility of future maritime pirate's attacks. This study uses an analytical–descriptive approach to analyze the Study of Piracy from the Perspective of International Regulations and Their Impact on Trade and Transport. The findings of this study show that Piracy is one of the most important threats to international trade and maritime transport security. The maritime environment possesses some unique characteristics, including the extraterritoriality of the high seas and poor or inconsistent security measures that apply in ships and coastal areas and facilities could make them attractive to pirate operations in many parts of the world. Therefore, to have an efficient and effective fight against piracy based on the rule of law, the most important international sources to study the challenges against piracy are the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea, the Security Council Approvals, and IMO regulations. Although the approval of national laws of countries can bring transparency and efficiency in the fight against the phenomenon of piracy. Finally, Regional cooperation among States has an important role to play in solving the problem of piracy against ships.
