10 Years of the Wolf Amendment: Assessing Effects and Outcomes

Friday, December 10, 2021

In April 2011, Congress passed the Wolf amendment to put speed bumps in front of possible cooperation with China in space, and has reaffirmed the policy annually in subsequent legislation.  In order to understand how this legislation has shaped U.S. national interests and activities, SWF hosted a virtual panel discussion which looked at the original intent of the legislation and how it has evolved; presented U.S. experiences in carrying out its requirements; examined consequences of the legislation; and analyzed possible paths forward for engagement with China in space. It also included a conversational keynote with former NASA Administrator Charles Frank Bolden Jr. For the full speaker list and a video recording of the event, please visit the event page here
