This House believes that the only answer to piracy on the high sea is international cooperation

Contents

Background and Context of Debate:

With the recent outbreak of piracy in the seas near Somalia with all its negative consequences this problem undoubtedly needs to be addressed. The question is, whether the international cooperation is the best way to deal with pirates, whether it addresses the core of the problem.

Somalia has been having problems since decolonization, however, after muslim extremist groups took over Somalia started to be recognised as the first failed state. In the last two years there's been a steep increase in piracy, which has since then caused problems to every single ship travelling at that area and has hurt local economy as well (e.g. lower revenues for the Suez Canal, delays for customers, increased danger of travelling...).

Sufficiency

Pro

  • Financial sufficiency. For material reasons, more states are needed to provide enough financial resources to tackle piracy, it is something that can't be done by a single state or by a not-so-powerful organization (Ethiopia, African Union, etc.).
  • Military reasons. As we can see, 50 000 peacekeepers from Ethiopia or the deployed troops by the African Union were unable to deal with pirates adequately, therefore the more countries cooperate the more probable the success in future is.

Coherence

Pro

  • Policies are not in a contradiction. If countries cooperate and implement coherent approach to tackle piracy, they are more likely to succeed given that they are effectively helping each other instead of instigating chaos by implementing policies that would contradict themselves.

Con

  • Words, not deeds. The problem with many states cooperating is that each of these states is likely to have its own motives to involve itself in a conflict, thus discussions about tacking the problem are more likely to be long, ineffective and counter-productive - and therefore undesirable.
