“La piraterie au fil de l’histoire : Un défi pour l’État”
(Presses de l’Université Paris Sorbonne, 480 pp)

Since the 1990s, maritime piracy re-emerged in statistics, as an immemorial and timeless phenomenon. This collective book, edited by Michèle Battesti (IRSEM), provides an overview of the main past and current trends in maritime piracy. It questions piracy from antiquity to the present, to understand the successes and failures of pirates practices, factors favoring their emergence and the reality of the threats they pose to the freedom of the seas. Authors also discuss the means taken by States to fight pirates to eradicate or contain them to an acceptable level.

Renaud Bellais and Josselin Droff wrote a chapter in this book: “La lutte contre la piraterie comme bien public international : une analyse économique” (pp 233-249).

About Josselin Droff

My Ph.D dissertation discussed spatial issues in defense economics, with a special focus on the industrial organization of Maintenance Repair and Overhaul (MRO) of defense platforms.I still work on the organization of defense production with concepts and tools of spatial and regional economic theory. More particularly, I am currently working on the application of spatial economic concepts to the organization of European defense. I'm also involved in a project financed by the French Defense Procurement Agency (Direction Générale pour l'Armement - DGA). The project deals with innovation issues in defense equipment. In another work in progress, I study the regional impact of French defense reforms since the beginning of the 2000s.
