China's Motives in Combatting Piracy in the Gulf of Aden

The Diplomat published on 25 February 2016 an analysis titled "Chinese Anti-Piracy and the Global Maritime Commons" by Matthew G. Minot-Scheuermann, a non-resident fellow with CSIS Pacific Forum's Young Leaders Program. 

The author argues that China's naval presence and activities off the Horn of Africa are defined by three factors: independent command and control of its engagement, unilateral action, and an unwillingness to meaningfully integrate into other anti-piracy coalitions operating in the area.  He adds that China is operating in its own interest.
