What are the political challenges for a Space development ?

Ifri's Space Program seeks to establish the importance of space as a political subject among policymakers and the general public, to highlight the central role it plays in our societies and economies. It also aims to situate national, regional and international space policies in the broader context of the dynamics currently affecting international relations. Finally, the project seeks to define and illustrate the strategic opportunities of space, to establish and understand its importance in international politics. The Space Program focuses its analyses on Europe, since its ability to cope with the challenges of the 21st century will depend in part on the development of a coherent and ambitious space strategy.
