Why is maritime piracy increasing in some parts of the world?

    There are several causes working together. Some of the major ones are corrupt governments, thriving black markets for stolen cargo, and the inability or unwillingness of police to investigate piracy crimes.  I don’t have a source on this, but I also have a hunch that the current global economic crisis is a factor.  Desperate times may be forcing people to use desperate means to get by.

    Somalia has been in a civil war since the early 1990’s, which has created anarchy and instability. There have also been claims that illegal fishing and pollution dumped by foreign ships has reduced fish populations of the coast of Somalia, and the locals have been forced to live off piracy instead.
