Towards Greater Security in Outer Space: Some Recommendations Note de l'Ifri, November 2009
Space security has become an increasingly important issue over recent years, with the international community witnessing a substantial increase in orbital debris from both deliberate and accidental satellite destructions.
To address this important issue, Ifri and Secure World Foundation (SWF) held a workshop in Paris on June 18-19, 2009 under the banner "Assessing the Current Dynamics of Space Security".
Ifri is now happy to present this policy paper based on the discussions of the workshop participants. The paper assesses the dynamics of current international deliberations and actionson space security and presents recommendations for improving it.
