From 2010 to 2015 Piracy-studies.org systematically collected a bibliography of academic works analyzing contemporary (post WWII) maritime piracy. The collection is comprised of over 500 academic books, journal articles, working papers and policy reports. In addition some noteworthy titles on the ‘history of piracy’ and general interest literature on piracy are included. The aim of the bibliography was to gather a complete collection of academic works on contemporary maritime piracy to facilitate cross-disciplinary collaboration as well as transfer knowledge to policy analysts and counter-piracy practitioners.
