Research Fellow Dr Zhen Sun participated in the ReCAAP Capacity Building Workshop in Yangon, Myanmar, on 3–6 September 2018. ReCAAP is the first Regional Cooperation Agreement on Combating Piracy and Armed Robbery against Ships in Asia (ReCAAP). The workshop brought together 25 ReCAAP Focal Point Officers from 14 ReCAAP member states, and other law enforcement officers from Myanmar. The workshop focussed on sharing knowledge and experiences among the Focal Points, and on discussing challenges faced by the ReCAAP Information Sharing Centre and the Focal Points in dealing with piracy and armed robbery against ships in Asia.

Dr Sun gave a lecture on ‘Basics of International Law of the Sea’. In the lecture, Dr Sun gave an overview of the current legal framework of the law of the sea, discussed the differences between the definitions of piracy and armed robbery against ships, and the relevant international regulations of both activities.
