In this webtalk, we will talk about the economic and financial dimensions of space security. Space-based deliverables and services have become an integral part of life in most of the developed world. The space domain has witnessed a rapid increase in commercial capabilities and a growing number of nations worldwide are seeking to acquire space-derived benefits and indigenous capabilities. This dynamic environment introduces new networks, partnerships, and interdependence within the space industry, as well as new security challenges, many of which are still awaiting thorough policy-level scrutiny.
On 19 – 21 June 2022, the Prague Security Studies Institute is holding its 6th Space Security Conference, entitled “The Global Space Competition: Security, Markets and Sanctions” where these topics will be discussed by leading space security experts, senior policy and military officials, and select industry representatives.
