Sammanfattning: Has the recent large-scale piracy off the coast of Somalia finally come to an end? The world has responded to the piracy threat in the region with several maritime large-scale anti-piracy operations designed to protect shipping vessels and to deter and arrest pirates. Even though these actions may have contributed to the decline in piracy, there is doubt whether this is a long-term solution, as it fails to address the underlying causes of piracy that is often found ashore. By using theory-developing and theory-consuming strategies this essay has developed a theoretical framework, devised to combat piracy, from factors considered to trigger piracy and theories regarding counterinsurgency. The framework is then used to examine whether the international community's collective contribution in the country contributes to a long-term solution of Somali piracy. The results portray an identification of several measures that have taken place ashore, which initially do not aim to combat piracy, but are considered to contribute to both reducing piracy and to be a more long-term solution to the problem. But even if these measures contribute to a long-term solution, it is difficult to say if they are sufficient enough for Somali piracy to cease completely.
