Security in Outer Space: Rising Stakes for Civilian Space Programmes (2018)
This year ESPI will organise its 12th Autumn Conference on the following topic: “Security in Outer Space: Rising Stakes for Civilian Space Programmes”. Drawing on the findings of a joint research collaboration with George Washington University´s Space Policy Institute, the event will discuss the ongoing reshaping of European and American approaches to Space Security issues. Greater emphasis will be put on the criticality of future short- and long-term policy developments in this area and how to reach the full potential of a transatlantic cooperative approach in this specific field.
The 12th Autumn Conference will be a two-day event and will cover the following three sessions:
- State of Play in Space Security Strategies: Space Assets in an Evolving Environment;
- Forging Ahead with European Space Security Efforts;
- Thinking Transatlantic Cooperation: Towards STM.
The event was intentionally designed to have a forward-looking vision on Space Security strategies to be endorsed on both sides of the Atlantic through a careful selection of speakers active in the field, both in the public and private sectors.
