Piracy is defined as a warlike activity that mainly involves non-state actors. Pirates are sea thieves who attack and rob ship while on the sea (Burnett, 2002). While piracy is implemented for economic gains resulting from the criminal activity, history shows that piracy can also be carried out for different reasons including political reasons, like in the case of Caribbean piracy. The term piracy mainly encompasses different acts committed in water bodies or on the show. However, there is a strict definition of the world piracy because it only applies when another party, travelling in a different vessel attacks another vessel. This means that it does not include instances where one passenger traveling in the same vessel steals from another passenger. The term is therefore used to refer to raids that are carried out across land borders and by non-state actors.
