When China Goes to the Moon...
Addresses China´s possible ambition to send its taikonauts to the Moon and elaborates on its implications on an international level
Disentangles China´s space strategy from a wide range of perspectives and provides novel and in-depth understanding of the underlying philosophy of China´s political behavior, both domestically and internationally and how space is instrumentalised in this respect
Investigates how Chinese determination to go to the Moon could affect the rest of the institutional landscape, performing a critical analysis on the much-discussed scenario of a new space race for the re-conquest of the Moon and accompanies the analysis with an informed assessment of alternative scenarios where more cooperative pathways to future space exploration might become possible
Offers the first holistic reflection on the opportunities and challenges Europe will be facing vis-à-vis Chinese space ambitions and assesses the different strategies available to European stakeholders in this regard
