While piracy in Southeast Asia has been addressed better over time, maritime predations continue to occur in the region. These predations, on small traders and maritime communities, afflict these groups and individuals and contribute to their insecurity. They are vulnerable populations whose livelihoods and way of life have been threatened, yet whose security has not been adequately dealt with through traditional maritime security approaches. Through a non-traditional security lens, the problem of lower-end piracy – or maritime predations – is examined using case studies. This may, in time, lead to more appropriate policy approaches to deal with the root causes of piracy and maritime predations in Southeast Asia in the longer term.
