New Space Security Course has begun!

25.02.2015

On Fabruary 19, with the support and co-sponsorship of the Prague Security Studies Institute, new course entitled "Space Security in the 21st Century" began. The course is taught at the Department of the International Relations of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Charles University in Prague.

The central objective of this course is to introduce the rapidly growing importance of the field of space security. Among the questions raised early on will be how the security and defense policies of leading world powers influence outer space activities. This course is designed to explore the security dimensions of space from a policy, regulatory and technical perspective, with an emphasis on the irresponsible or disruptive actions of some space-faring nations in this domain. 

The course consists of six general classes, four guest lectures and two seminars. Recognized speakers with extensive expertise in the field will be invited for each of these longer lectures. These speakers will include senior present and former EU and U.S. space-related officials and academics from institutions such as the Space Policy Institute of George Washington University and the EU’s European External Action Service (EEAS). These lectures will take place in the American Center in Prague.
