For the first edition of Debrief, James Sheehan is joined by Lieutenants Kurt Albaugh (President) and Scott Cheney-Peters (Founding Director) of the Center for International Maritime Security (CIMSEC).
You can subscribe to our podcasts on iTunes.
Kurt, Scott and James discuss the US Navy’s “pivot to the Pacific”, whether maritime disputes over economic resources – such as fisheries in the South China Sea – are based on economic or security concerns, the Joint Strike Fighter programme, the Falkland Islands and the issue of international piracy.
The Center for International Maritime Security is a non-profit, non-partisan think tank. It was formed in 2012 to bring together forward-thinkers from a variety of fields to examine the capabilities, threats, hotspots, and opportunities for security in the maritime domain.
