Abstract

This chapter discusses contemporary maritime security and examines the extent of its (non) traditional nature in the context of international security. Based on the existing literature and adopted strategies, it highlights that there is no internationally accepted definition. Arguably, maritime security’s concept depends on the perspective of the ‘end user’ and it broadens as far as the relevant stakeholders get involved. Still, contemporary maritime security is directly linked and interdependent with human security and development. The combination of human insecurity’s non-traditional nature and the increasing involvement of non-state actors in projecting maritime insecurities, results in its differentiation from the traditional, interstate security challenges
