The Future of Outer Space Security 2020
The 2020 edition is cancelled. More information on the 2021 edition will come shortly.
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 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.
