Description du cours :
On 22-23 March 2017, the Geneva Centre for Security Policy’s (GCSP) Geopolitics and Global Futures Programme is organising an Executive Course on The Future of Outer Space Security.
Led by Professor Nayef Al-Rodhan (www.sustainablehistory.com, @SustainHistory), this course will include interactive lectures and discussions with experts in space security and law, space debris and technological tools for mitigation, global navigation satellite systems, the International Space Station, cyber-security in space, and much more. This course addresses the latest debates and conflicts at the heart of the burgeoning and increasingly significant field of outer space security. It will develop participants’ understanding of how new technologies and practices will impact future conflicts and ethical questions.
We have an impressive line-up of speakers from prestigious institutions already confirmed, including:
• Dr Natália Archinard, Deputy Head of Education, Science and Space Section at Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs
• Mr Gérard Brachet, Space Policy Consultant, Paris, France
• Professor Sergio Marchisio, Full Professor of International Law and Space Law, Sapienza University of Rome, Italy
