The Naval War College published in November 2013 a massive study titled “No Substitute for Experience: Chinese Anti-Piracy Operations in the Gulf of Aden” by Andrew S. Erickson and Austin M. Strange. The authors address six major aspects of China’s anti-piracy operations in the Gulf of Aden since their inception in December 2008: modern piracy and the relevance to China; institutional underpinnings: domestic political and policy issues; China’s views on multilateral coordination; China’s recent anti-piracy activities in the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean; operational trajectories; and lessons learned and implications for global maritime governance.
