MARITIME STRATEGIES BASED ON THREATS

Abstract

Threat-based maritime security strategies, depending on nation and culture, geopolitics and political-military
developments at a given moment, can be interpreted differently, and it is important to know the entire theoretical spectrum
and the historical-causal evolution of concepts that are interdependent. The presence of an explicit link between maritime
security, threats and geopolitics is measured by the unequivocal emergence of the concept of geopolitics and the certainty
that threats affect maritime security. The direct influence of threats and geopolitical factors on maritime security objectives is
measured by the emergence of risks to maritime geopolitical interests and geographical positions when it comes to maritime
safety objectives.
