5th PSSI Space Security Conference, “Evolution of the Counterspace Threat and Strengthening of International Space Partnerships”

When: Sunday, June 9, 2019

to Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Where: Prague, Czech Republic

                        Prague Security Studies Institute


On June 9-11, 2019, the Prague Security Studies Institute (PSSI) convened in Prague the fifth event in its Space Security Conference series. 

"Evolution of the Counterspace Threat and Strengthening of International Space Partnerships" focused on the rapidly advancing threats to space operations and the role of space partnerships in addressing – and, hopefully, mitigating – this higher risk environment. It examined the issue of space hybrid operations that span an increasing number of areas (including the commercial space sector), as well as the non-democratic model of space partnerships. 

The 2018 co-organizers were the European Space Agency (ESA), the Japanese Prime Minister’s Office Cabinet Satellite Intelligence Center (CSICE) and the Secure World Foundation (SWF).  Previous PSSI Space Security Conferences were held in Prague (in 2011 and 2016), Tokyo (in 2013) and Washington, DC (in 2017), co-organized with the European Space Agency’s European Space Policy Institute (ESPI), the Office of National Space Policy of the Japanese Prime Minister’s Cabinet Office, the Secure World Foundation (SWF) and the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS).
