The Future of Outer Space Security

Understanding the Impact of Outer Space on International Security

Humanity’s growing dependence on space and space assets raises contentious issues. Discussions about the responsibility of humanity’s use of space has become increasingly critical, whether the topic is purely practical, such as mitigating space debris and orbital congestion or, with the advent of new technologies and new actors, has more wide-ranging consequences for governance and space politics.

Focusing on these issues and more, this course addresses the latest debates and conflicts at the heart of the burgeoning and increasingly vital field of outer space security.
