Developments in space policies, programmes and technologies throughout the world and in Europe

  • Wolfgang Rathgeber
  • Christophe Venet
Part of the Yearbook on Space Policy book series (YEARSPACE)

Abstract

Seen from an abstract level, there are two co-existing development lines in space polices and programmes. One is consolidation of projects and efforts already set out and pursued before. The other one is the search and decision for new goals and strategic objectives. In both cases, the trend towards international cooperation is being reinforced. Cooperation schemes often include emerging space actors.
