The Inevitable Weaponization of Space
Thursday, December 5, 20196:00 pm – 7:30 pm
Bard Globalization & International Affairs Program 108 West 39th Street, Suite 1000-A, NY, NY
Space is both big business and a potential battleground. This year, as Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos made new strides with their space companies Space X and Blue Origin, India became the latest country to test an anti-satellite weapon. How should we think about space in terms of international relations and security? Can diplomacy constrain the weaponization of space, and what we will lose if it fails?
Dr. Joan Johnson-Freese, professor of National Security Affairs at the US Naval War College, will be in conversation with Dr. Giles Alston, to discuss the parallel trends of the privatization of space exploration and the overt weaponization of space.
Dr. Johnson-Freese previously served as Chair of the National Security Affairs Department from 2002-2010 and was on the faculty of the Asia Pacific Center for Security Studies, the Air War College, and the University of Central Florida. Dr. Alston is a Senior Analyst at Oxford Analytica and faculty member at BGIA.
This event is free and open to the public by RSVP.
