The Future of Outer Space Security 2019

Understanding the implications of outer space activity for international security

As humanity becomes increasingly dependent on space-based technologies, the need to maintain space as a peaceful environment for international cooperation and technological and scientific progress is ever more paramount. This task is further complicated by the proliferation of actors operating in space, and the potential placement or use of offensive weapons in outer space.
This course provides an overview of the key contemporary issues in outer-space governance from both a legal and policy-oriented perspective.



This course is part of the three-day Geopolitics and Global Futures Symposium which will take place on 12 - 14 June 2019. The Symposium will examine the multiple dimensions of global security, identifying and analysing transformative technologies, and using insights from neuroscience to further our understanding of international affairs. 



This course is designed for officials from governments and international organisations, as well as members of the security and defence policy planning and the intelligence communities. This course is also relevant to representatives from the private sector and nongovernmental organisations, journalists, and anyone with a professional interest in understanding future international security challenges.
