Oceans Beyond Piracy: freeing the hostages and intensifying the dialog

At the end of October 2016, the 26 sailors of Naham 3, held hostage in Somalia for more than four years were released. Behind this outcome was the work of several people, both locally and remotely, and several organizations.

One of the active participants is Oceans Beyond Piracy, a program of the U.S.-based NGO One Earth Future. Jérôme Michelet, a former French naval officer, and associate director of Oceans Beyond Piracy, discusses the actions and objectives of OBP.
