Welcome to Stellenbosch University



​​Whilst the broader SIGLA staffing and networking activities with stake holders are ongoing, the focus of the maritime hub is on growing a broader network with the aim of research, service delivery, cooperation, partnerships and publications on security in Africa's maritime domain.​​​​ To these ends SIGLA cooperates with researchers and practitioners working in the Safe Seas Project on maritime security capacity building, the Stable Seas Project on a maritime security Index for Africa and the UNODC's Global Maritime Crime Programme. In addition SIGLA also participates in the Academic Grouping of IORA with a focus on the Indian Ocean Rim and in the maritime security center of excellence ​in particular.
