Critical Space Infrastructures - new perspectives on space policy
No Thumbnail Available
Space systems are a key enabler for a wide variety of applications which have become critical to the functioning of modern societies. This chapter uses the Critical Infrastructure Protection framework to argue that space systems may constitute a new form of critical infrastructure, dubbed Critical Space Infrastructure, and traces the positive impact that such a perspective may have on space security governance. Critical Infrastructure Protection has developed a conceptual toolbox, as well as practical policy prescriptions, which may be of use to policy and decision-makers to increase resilience and meet future space security challenges.
