Talking Foreign Policy with Michael Scharf

“Talking Foreign Policy”

Topics up for discussion are: Maritime Piracy

If you've been to a movie lately, it's likely you've seen the preview of "Captain Phillips". It's an upcoming film starring Tom Hanks about the real-life ordeal of an American cargo ship captain held hostage by Somali pirates. Unlike the loveable rogues played by Johny Depp and Orlando Bloom, real life pirates are desperate and deadly - and increasingly children.
We've assembled a panel of the world's foremost piracy experts to discuss the continuing challenges of maritime piracy.
