A European Approach to Space Security
A European Approach to Space Security, by Xavier Pasco, is the sixth occasional paper of the series. It documents the efforts of EU members to develop common policies and practical collaboration for space missions related to security. It notes that the European community has not as yet been able to establish authoritative coordination of national military programs and warns that balancing those programs with increasingly important commercial and social interests is a generally unresolved problem. But it also suggests that EU efforts to develop collective rules, confidence-building measures, and codes of responsible conduct can make an important constructive contribution to working out global arrangements for space.
