Piracy, smuggling and illegal fishing are three blue crimes increasingly high on the international agenda. Such crimes have different expressions across the world’s maritime regions and affect human lives, political stability and economic interests in different ways, ranging from their impact on coastal communities to international shipping and even national security.

There are significant debates and uncertainties, however, around the current usage of the term ‘blue crime’. These centre around the meaning, scope and reach of the concept including, what illicit activities it comprises, and how these can be meaningfully structured in ways that that both recognise the diverse nature of maritime crime yet also provide a basis for an integrated response to it.

Questions for discussion

• What forms of blue crimes are invisible, but should gain more attention?
• How do these three blue crimes hang together?
• Should we speak about blue crime, rather than transnational organised crime at sea?
• Can we build better synergies in tackling different forms of crime at sea?
