Maritime Security Research Group

Maritime Security Research Group

The Maritime Security Research Group draws together scholars interested in security within the maritime domain across disciplinary boundaries. We take a broad approach to maritime security, one which encompasses not only traditional hard security concerns, but also human security, maritime crime and the ‘blue economy’. The group has expertise in international law, history, strategy, naval affairs, and a range of Indo-Pacific regional perspectives. Its current focuses include the law of the sea, the South China Sea dispute, and wider issues of seapower and lawfare. The group combines academic staff, postgraduate researchers, Visiting Fellows and works with external collaborators from across the academic, government and policy sectors.
