- et al.
This is an ethnography of counter-piracy in the waters off the Horn of Africa between 2008-2018. I trace the origins and decommissioning of the Global Anti-Piracy (GAP) program and argue that counter-piracy is best understood through the imbrication of sovereign experiments and the financial logic of risk in a form I call derivative sovereignties.
