A “Hybrid Approach” to the Weaponization of Space and New Opportunities for Cooperation

An upcoming international conference in Vienna to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first UN Conference on the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space seeks to “consider the future course of global space cooperation for the benefit of humankind.” This conference comes at a time where the weaponization of space is on the near horizon, with the U.S., Russia, and China all developing technologies for the purpose. Brian G. Chow explores some of these developments and conversations in-depth in his new article “Space Arms Control: A Hybrid Approach,” freshly published in Strategic Studies Quarterly.
