Security in maritime domain: Building European Union-Wide cooperation

The Irish Minister for Justice, Equality and Defence, Mr. Alan Shatter, T.D., outlined on April, 8 the importance of building an EU-wide consensus to deliver effective security in the maritime domain, addressing thus one of Ireland’s EU Presidency priorities- the collaboration in the field of maritime safety, security and surveillance in the EU.
The remark was made in the opening the high level seminar on Challenges and Opportunities in Maritime Security and Surveillance for Effective Governance and Innovation in the EU’s Maritime Domain.
However threats, such as, illegal and uncontrolled migration, illegal fishing, terrorism, piracy, and people and drug trafficking cannot be addressed by individual Member States acting in isolation.  “We need to focus on how we can improve cooperation between all the various actors, whether that be naval forces, coastguards, customs, police or other member State security actors engaged in delivering maritime security, safety and surveillance within the Union”, the Minister said.
