Abstract


Maritime security is a section with many dimensions which occupied the mankind for centuries, something that is confirmed and by historical information. The main reason is the fact that older as also today the majority of the global transportations are taking place via the sea. The main preference reason for seaways is the lower cost compared with other modes of products and goods transport. One of the most important aspects of maritime security is maritime piracy. Maritime piracy after two centuries of continuous contraction outlines in recent years a worrying increase in various parts of the world, increase which has led to a close cooperation between international organizations, bodies and States in order to face this phenomenon. This cooperation is manifested in a legal level with the formation and implementation of specific law rules, but also in an operational level in order to be implemented the legal texts and in the same time to be ensured the regular flow of goods and services.
