Webinar Q&A

Do you think there could be any link between Houthi- and Somali-based piracy, and why do you think piracy is now experiencing a surge?

Kristina Siig:
I will have to underscore that I do not have certain information/primary data on this. However, it seems that the general understanding of this in the scientific community is that it is most likely due to operations such as Operation Prosperity Guardian, which has pulled resources out of the Gulf of Aden, where Somali-based piracy has normally occurred, and further North into the Red Sea.

In this way, the naval presence in the Gulf of Aden has decreased, resulting in a sort of “vacuum” that has been exploited by the pirates. However, whether this is the only reason or whether there is also a new situation on land in Somalia that has allowed for this re-surge, I do not know.
