This chapter gathers the key insights that have been gained from comparing countries, drawing on the loose framework presented in Chapter 1. It begins by revisiting the need to develop the theoretical discussion on capacity building presented in Chapter 2. It then discusses each of the dimensions of the framework in further detail and considers what general picture can be gained from the case studies concerning them. This starts with the maritime spaces that each of the countries have installed to address maritime insecurities and manage ocean resources. Next, the processes through which countries have problematised the maritime, before turning to the question of capacity building itself and the different institutions and activities the countries rely on or aspire to create. Finally, the editors reflect on the framework more generally by contextualising the results of the book in the wider debates on maritime security and the international relations of the sea.
