SWF Co-Organizes 5th PSSI Space Security Conference, “Evolution of the Counterspace Threat and Strengthening of International Space Partnerships”

Monday, June 17, 2019

The Prague Security Studies Institute (PSSI) convened in Prague the fifth event in its Space Security Conference series, with opening remarks by Executive Director Peter Martinez. 

It focused on the rapidly advancing threats to space operations and the role of space partnerships in addressing – and, hopefully, mitigating – this higher risk environment. It examined the issue of space hybrid operations that span an increasing number of areas (including the commercial space sector), as well as the non-democratic model of space partnerships. Previous PSSI Space Security Conferences were held in Prague (in 2011 and 2016), Tokyo (in 2013) and Washington, DC (in 2017), co-organized with the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI), the European Space Agency (ESA), the Office of National Space Policy of the Japanese Prime Minister’s Cabinet Office, the Secure World Foundation (SWF) and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). Washington Office Director Victoria Samson, moderated a panel on the "Evolution of the Counterspace Threat," and Space Law Advisor Chris Johnson also attended the event.
