Outer Space Security Conference 2022

When: Tuesday, November 1, 2022

to Wednesday, November 2, 2022

Space is increasingly critical to modern life on Earth. But there is growing concern that, as it becomes more economically and strategically important, it could become a theatre for conflict. Aware of this danger, the international community has attempted to address these concerns through various arms control, disarmament and governance proposals.

To explore these issues further, the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) organized the 2022 Space Security Conference. This two-day flagship event provided a unique forum for the Geneva-based diplomatic community —as well as visiting experts from military, industry and academic backgrounds— to discuss the particularities of the space domain and consider policy options to enhance space security.

UNIDIR has organized OS22 in cooperation with the Secure World Foundation and the Paris-based Fondation pour la Recherche Stratégique. Support from UNIDIR’s core funders provides the foundation for all of UNIDIR’s activities. This event was organized with financial and organizational support from the Governments of the United Kingdom, the Russian Federation, the People’s Republic of China, and the United States of America, as well as the Fondation pour la Recherche Stratégique (with the financial support of the European Union).
