Space Security Panel

Bookmark and Share

On December 15, 2010, the Union of Concerned Scientists hosted the event “Moving Ahead on Space Security,” at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace. The event provided perspectives on what steps the United States should take to move space security ahead; on the possibilities for international diplomatic engagement on space security; and on the historical context for trying to cooperate with China on space, and why that matters now.

The panel included these three presentations, followed by questions and discussion:

-Dr. Laura Grego, senior scientist, UCS Global Security Program:
“Next Steps for the United States”

-Ambassador Paul Meyer (retired), Former Canadian Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN and Conference of Disarmament:
“PAROS in Peril: Prospects for Renewed Outer Space Security Diplomacy”

-Dr. Gregory Kulacki, Senior Analyst & China Program Manager, UCS Global Security Program:
“Prospects for Cooperation with China on Space”
