Collective Security in Space: European Perspectives on Acceptable Approaches
15-16 May 2006
This workshop was part of a two-year project on "Collective Security in Space: Developing an Internationally Accepted Approach." The project is being led by the Space Policy Institute of George Washington University's Elliott School of International Affairs, with financial support from the John T. and Catherine D. MacArthur Foundation. The basic goal of the project is to broaden the debate within the United States regarding how best to achieve U.S. space-related security objectives by bringing international perspectives into that debate. During 2006, the project is focusing its attention on European perspectives. This workshop was intended to elicit thoughtful European views regarding approaches to achieving space security. Later this year, the workshop papers reflecting these views will be incorporated in a publication that will be disseminated both within the United States and internationally. A similar set of activities, with the focus on Asia/Pacific countries, will take place in 2007.
