Roberta Spivak received an MA in comparative politics of the Middle East from Columbia University. While in graduate school, she worked on issues related to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict for the Political Affairs Department at the United Nations. Roberta has spent the last few years wriiting on the gaps in law and state capacity that have allowed piracy to re-emerge in the 21st century. The book she co-authored, Maritime Piracy(Routledge 2012), serves as a primer for those interested in a concise, yet comprehensive, look at this ancient (and modern) practice. She serves as Managing Editor of the journal, Global Governance: A Review of Multilateralism and International Organizations published in cooperation with the Academic Council on the United Nations System (ACUNS) and Lynne Rienner Publishers.
