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.
