The introduction presents thematic findings from knowledge exchange exercises between the authors, other academics and over a dozen practitioners from port security and law enforcement in different port locations. This forms the basis for the discussion of different challenges and outlooks that each chapter unpacks. These include the presence of incompatible data sharing and information exchange systems; complex governance structures; the difficulties of coordination across authorities and institutions (public and private); competing priorities in and around the port space; the perennial tension between trade and security in ports; technological challenges, including cyber security; and corruption and organised crime as port-specific security challenges. A brief summary of each chapter is included at the end of the introduction, navigating readers through the text.

Keywords:   port security, political economy, port regulation, port-city interface, globalisation, glocal, corruption
