      MARITIME DIMENSION OF TRANSNATIONAL ORGANISED CRIME

      Develop the responsibility to maintain the safety of shipping and maritime security

  • METHODOLOGY

    The coastal community members and governmental law enforcers will express their experiences and practices with regards to maritime crimes and law enforcement tools that they identify as relevant to maritime (in) security.

    Creative focus group as a method will be used as it allows the participants to respond to each other on issues that are relevant to all. The focus groups (facilitated by the research team) include a visual element in order to allow the participants to express and contextualise their position within the broader realm of maritime insecurities.

    Through the creation of collages and the explanation of those collages, the participants are actively engaged in contextualising the problem, perceiving the impact of maritime criminal activities on their own security and livelihoods, and contemplating their role in combating crime and in increasing maritime security.
