It is Time for Space Governance Talks

Addressing vulnerability and promoting security
Posted May 23, 2020 | The Diplomat, Rajeswari Pillai Rajagopalan

Activities at the interface between space and national security are increasing. States are developing ang testing counter-space capabilities. The return to anti-satellite weapons testing (ASAT) and the establishment of military space units like China’s PLA Strategic Support Force and the U.S. Space Force show a deterioration of the space security environment. Rajeswari Pillai Rajagopalan warns in this article from The Diplomat that without effective multilateral discussions these disruptive and destabilizing trends will continue, and create a dangerous new normal for outer space activities.
