Abstract

BIEGUS, Olga  and  BUEGER, Christian. Poachers and pirates. Improving coordination of the global response to wildlife crime. SA crime q. [online]. 2017, n.60, pp.29-36. ISSN 2413-3108.  http://dx.doi.org/10.17159/2413-3108/2017/v0n60a1724.

This article aims to identify how the global response to wildlife crime can be improved and what role South Africa might play in it. To do so, we examine the emerging global wildlife crime regime and the challenges it faces. To offer an understanding of how governance could be improved, we ask how the success in curbing another transnational crime, piracy off the coast of Somalia, can serve as an example of international coordination. We discuss core lessons from the coordination and governance of counter-piracy. Through the comparison, we identify core dimensions by which the coordination of responses to wildlife crime might be improved. Our conclusion stresses the importance of more focused, inclusive and experimental forums. We end by outlining a number of core issues that South Africa should start to consider in its wildlife policies.
