In order to tackle Maritime piracy, the EU NAVFOR Somalia’s ATALANTA operation is strongly committed to promote Gender Equality and Women Empowerment; this being a determining factor to fight illicit activities and change the mind-set of the Somali population.


Maritime piracy in Somalia has been emerging since the mid-2000s, thus causing major challenges to national security that could potentially grow to larger global issues.
