Handbook of Space Security Presented at the European Parliament

16.03.2016

PSSI’s Space Security Program Director, Jana Robinson, served as a co-editor of, and author of three articles in, the Handbook of Space Security, a two-volume publication that took over three years to compile. The book provides an excellent resource on the space security portfolio for experts in the field, space policy decision-makers, as well as academic, industry, NGOs and other audiences. Since its online publication in October 2014 (printed version came out in 2015), there were over 20.000 chapter downloads almost equally distributed among individual articles.

The Handbook was presented at the European Parliament on 15 March 2016, at a gathering organized by the Kangaroo Group, demonstrating the growing interest of European decision-makers in this vital foreign and security policy portfolio. A power-point presentation from the event is available here. The welcoming remarks were delivered by Michael Gahler MEP, President of the Kangaroo Group and the meeting was moderated by Karl Won Wogau, Secretary General of the same group.
