Open event: Seminar on maritime security in the Gulf of Guinea and beyond

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the University of Copenhagen, and Danish shipping are hosting a seminar on maritime security in the Gulf of Guinea and beyond on the 4th of October as a part of Danish Maritime Days 2022. The event is open to everyone who is interested in maritime security for example authorities and scientists.

The organizers describe the event as follows:

“The aim of the seminar is to address the current and possible future challenges to maritime security, with the Gulf of Guinea as the focal point. However, other security challenges around the globe, and especially the war in Ukraine, may have a ripple effect on Denmark’s security priorities and future maritime focus. In this context, the Danish decision to fully participate in the European cooperation on security and defense also opens for stronger cooperation with our European allies, including in the maritime domain. The seminar intends to debate some of these difficult questions Denmark is facing and how to address them”
