HSSC Launch Event on 29 Nov 2019: Space Security

In recent years, space has become a topic of security interest: States such as China and Russia increase their military space investment, the European Union discusses its first space defence programme, while President Trump called for a new “space force.” What are the challenges and opportunities related to security and space technology? And how can the international community prevent an arms race in space?

For its launch event, the HSSC has the honour to welcome Ms Andrea Richards, Responsible at the Foreign Ministry for Space Security in the Section Security Policy and NATO and Mr Marc Becker, Space Situational Awareness Officer at Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt. Hertie students will have the unique opportunity to discuss space security with our experts and gain valuable insights in one of today’s emerging security challenges.
