Might criminals in weak states benefit from better governance? We test the relationship between Somali piracy and local business conditions as well as (naval) law enforcement.

Increasingly effective naval measures in the Gulf of Aden displaced piracy into the Indian Ocean. © 2013 by Walter de Gruyter Berlin Boston 2013.
