Chapter 6 revisits arguments presented in earlier chapters, and provides a summary of the key theoretical issues that have emerged from this research. In particular, it re-emphasises the role that relational ties, trust norms, and social capital play in building effectual policing and security networks to protect and govern not only maritime ports, but private spaces more generally. Drawing upon the contrasting results observed in the two case studies, this chapter also discusses ‘what works’, and ‘what does not’, and suggests how authorities could learn to re-imagine and realign their social structures (to achieve ‘social alignment’) in order to build social capital, and facilitate better penetration into the collaborative crime control space. Finally, this chapter concludes by addressing some of the potential directions for advancing this work, and proposes an agenda for future research.
