Analyzing Maritime Insecurity in Ghana (AMARIS)

The negative impacts of maritime insecurities on development, trade and human security are increasingly recognised. What are the effects of current responses to maritime insecurity? How can countries with high levels of maritime insecurity be better supported? To answer these questions, AMARIS studies maritime crime and maritime security policy in Ghana.

AMARIS offers one of the first in-depth case studies of a country’s response to maritime insecurity. It investigates the manifestations of maritime crime in Ghana and the drivers and inter-sections. It studies the governance and capacity building response to them. AMARIS is implemented in close cooperation with SafeSeas and partners in Ghana.
