Maritime Security Workshop (MARSEW)

The incumbent Chief of the Naval Staff Admiral Muhammad Amjad Khan Niazi NI(M) S Bt during his tenure as Commandant PN War College conceived the idea of conducting Maritime Security Workshop at National level. The aim was to generate maritime awareness among policy makers, academia, business and media community to give focus attention towards formulating maritime policies. The idea transformed into reality when the maiden Maritme Security Workshop (MARSEW-1) was conducted from 11-25 September 2017.

Since then, MARSEW became a signature event of Pakistan Navy. On the occasion of MARSEW-2, seminal Maritime Doctrine of Pakistan (MDP) was launched. It was part of Pakistan Navy’s effort to catalyse understanding of maritime issues at National level. MARSEW-3 marked a watershed moment for projecting maritime awareness when Maritime Centre of Excellence (MCE), the first of its kind in the country, was established at premises of Pakistan Navy War College. MCE is aimed at promoting Blue Economy, Maritime Security and related research studies in tandem with devising a national maritime narrative.

MARSEW-4 marked greater significance since it culminated with the Golden Jubilee Commemoration of Pakistan Navy Staff Course (PNSC). Dovetailed with MARSEW-4, the Golden Jubilee of PNSC eulogize the cardinal role of Pakistan Navy War College as cradle of middle order naval leadership in Pakistan Navy.

This year (2022) MARSEW-5 is being organized with the theme of “Secure Seas – Prosperous Pakistan” from 07-15 December 2022. Honourable President of Pakistan has kindly consented to be the Chief Guest for Closing Day of MARSEW-5.
