Because maritime insecurity prevails in some areas of the world, it is important that we all use the same terms to categorize illegal acts.
SHADE 48, which took place on 26 and 27 May and was chaired by EUNAVFOR Atalanta, was an opportunity for many centres to address this point. The aim of this coordination is to be pragmatic, to be understandable by as many people as possible and to leave no room for interpretation.
The MICA Center was invited to present its categorization of events. Through the voice of its second-in-command, it presented the different definitions used in its cells and which are already shared by other organizations.
