The United Nation's Institute for Disarmament Research's (UNIDIR) Space Security Conference series has proved to be an invaluable forum for dialogue on issues affecting space security and stability and an effective vehicle for sharing international space and security policy perspectives. The 2019 conference, entitled "Supporting Diplomacy: Clearing the Path for Dialogue," was organized by UNIDIR in collaboration with the Secure World Foundation, Fondation pour la recherche stratégique (with funding from the European Union)and The Simons Foundation Canada, plus it was organized with the support of the governments of Brazil, the Holy See, the People's Republic of China, and the Russian Federation. SWF Executive Director Peter Martinez spoke about next steps for multilateral dialogue, while SWF Washington Office Director Victoria Samson contributed to a panel examining proximity operations and how to prevent this technology from disrupting space security. For more information, please visit our event page here.
