On October 13, 2020, representatives from eight countries announced the inaugural signing of the Artemis Accords, a multilateral agreement on several principles related to future space exploration activities on the Moon. Over the last two years, the number of signatories has risen to twenty-one, including several countries that have not historically had significant human spaceflight cooperation with the United States. The Accords have also renewed the international discussions over key space law issues, including use of space resources and coordinating activities on the Moon.

To discuss these and other issues related to the Artemis Accords, Secure World Foundation hosted a luncheon panel discussion on December 12, 2022, from 11:30 am – 2:00pm at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace at 1779 Massachusetts Ave, NW, Washington, DC.
