Maritime Security Strengthening International Cooperation
/reports/2009/maritime-security-strengthening-international-cooperation
Headlines around the world today describe the dramatic rising tide of criminal behaviour at sea: piracy off the coast of Africa, illegal immigration across the Mediterranean, and the flood of narcotics into Africa and Europe from across the Atlantic, to name only a few. Some experts estimate that currently 12 percent of all maritime activities take place ‘on the dark side.’ As these activities increase in number and spread to new locations across the globe, we are beginning to witness the detrimental economic and security impact throughout the world. The rise in illicit activity at sea affects not only developed nations that rely on free access to maritime shipping lanes for their economic success and prosperity, but also underdeveloped, vulnerable nations whose weak infrastructure and internal economic and political stability are placed under even greater duress. With these challenges in mind, this conference addressed critical questions on how to improve global maritime security. Speakers tackled issues such as the evolving nature of risks and threats in the maritime environment; the current gaps in the gathering, the sharing and the analysis of information; bilateral, regional, and international legal frameworks for maritime security; and the role leading maritime powers and multinational organisations can play in assisting developing countries to build capacity for securing their coastal areas. This report summarizes the presentations and discussions on these topics and concludes with a set of implications and considerations for maritime stakeholders.

Maintaining the US led International Order
/reports/2020/06/maintaining-the-us-led-international-order
Maritime security operations sustain and enforce the rule of law and good order at sea. Yet in an era of great power competition (GPC), do those activities support national strategy? This paper offers a structure for answering that question, placing maritime security in the context of GPC by describing competition as a function of control for the international system. The framework introduced in this paper demonstrates that maritime security is an important component of maintaining a system that benefits US security and prosperity. The framework also shows that there are two roles for maritime security in GPC—avoiding corrosion of the US-led system by great powers and avoiding corrosion caused by lesser powers. These two approaches have different implications for Navy deployment, procurement, and employment policy. Consequently, although our analysis suggests that maritime security is integral to GPC, its roles can vary, pulling resources in divergent directions according to policy priorities.

As global power has shifted, as new warfighting domains have opened up, CNA has flexed and expanded its analytical expertise to meet the needs of the Navy, Marine Corps and Department of Defense. But throughout these evolutions, we have maintained a constant focus on the nation’s most capable adversaries. Our approach to great power competition is holistic, ranging from strategic analysis to tactical evaluation. Today, our scientists analyze operations and tactics across an ever-expanding range of warfare domains. Beyond the surface, air and undersea commands we have closely supported for decades, CNA is staying ahead of the latest threats with our Center for Autonomy and Artificial Intelligence and our Cyber Research Program. Great powers are constantly adapting. So is CNA.

Russia experts  Michael Kofman  and  Jeffrey Edmonds  share their experience attending the Moscow Conference on International Security in April 2018. They discuss the importance of understanding how Russian defense ministers view Russia’s relationships with the U.S., E.U., Syria, and China, and the general tone of structural confrontation demonstrated at the conference. Attending the conference allowed them to see first-hand that these officials have a fundamentally different understanding of reality than their American counterparts.

What Makes Great Power Relations and Why Compete
/reports/2020/01/what-makes-great-power-relations-and-why-compete
What does great power competition mean and why might it be happening? This paper deconstructs those questions to take a deeper look at what makes powers great and how various explanatory frameworks within international relations scholarship predict great power interaction under different conditions. The intention here is to pull the critical assumptions built into policy documents and senior leader statements to the forefront, facilitating dialogue on a rapid and dynamic shift in US national security focus. In other words, this paper is designed to explore the most critical features of emerging strategic documents, the “what” and the “why” of great power competition.
