Maritime Piracy in South-East Asia

Journalists and experts discuss different aspects of maritime piracy in Southeast Asia and possible relation to maritime terrorism.

Hosted by the Media Programme Asia of the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation (KAS) in Singapore, this workshop will bring together journalists and maritime experts to discuss various topics related to piracy such as its’ social causes as well as its’ often declared possible relation to maritime terrorism. The focus will be placed on the problems and challenges that journalists face when trying to objectively report on the topic.
