Introduction by James Jay Carafano, Ph.D.
The Heritage Foundation

One of the key priorities of the Administration in the post 9/11 security environment is the protection of America's maritime assets. Through initiatives such as the Container Security Initiative, the Customs-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism, the Maritime Transportation Security Act, and the 24-hour rule, the Administration has pushed for a layered approach to protecting America's maritime domain. This event will examine what vulnerabilities still remain to be addressed with regard to maritime security and what feasible solutions are available to deal with the gaps. The goal of this event is to develop the pillars of a strategy for maritime security in the 21st century.
