Marshall Institute to Hold Meeting on EU Code of Conduct This Friday

The Marshall Institute will hold a meeting on “Codes of Conduct in Space: Considering the Impact of the EU Code of Conduct on U.S. Security in Space” this Friday, February 4, at the Capitol Hill Club from 9:00-10:30 am EST.

Linking to a January 27 Washington Times story that cited three congressional staff who said they were told last week that the United States “is looking to sign on” to the European Union’s (EU’s) Code of Conduct for Outer Space Activities, the Institute’s announcement says the meeting will “assess the strengths and limitations” of the EU document.

Speakers are Peter Marquez, former Director of Space Policy at the White House National Security Council and a Marshall Institute Fellow, Paula DeSutter, former Assistant Secretary of State for Verification, Compliance and Implementation, and Scott Pace, Director of the Space Policy Institute at George Washington University.

The Capitol Hill Club is located at 300 First Street, S.E. Washington, DC.
