[IT] Nel corso degli anni 2000, pirateria e criminalità marittima sono divenute un problema di punta nell'agenda di sicurezza internazionale. Con la Legge 130/2011, anche l'Italia ha risposto alle sollecitazioni provenienti dalla propria armatoria, introducendo la possibilità di imbarco di team armati su navi mercantili.
In 2011, the growing number of pirate attacks prompted several flag states to authorise the use of armed guards aboard vessels. Despite facing the same threat, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands and Italy have adopted three distinct approaches to securing their merchant ships, ranging from the exclusive use of private security companies (PSCs) to the employment of military personnel only.
Among the violent events that have affected – and unfortunately still affect – Uganda, a prominent place is undoubtedly occupied by the insurgency in the northern regions, the key figure of which is the infamous Joseph Kony. Less well known, also due to lower levels of violence, are the vicissitudes affecting the western portion of the country, in particular the region called Rwenzori.
