The workshop, “African Perspectives for Advancing Space Security Through Norms, Rules and Principles of Responsible Behaviours” was designed to raise awareness of matters addressed in the current Open-Ended Working Group on Reducing Space Threats through Norms, Rules and Principles of Responsible Behaviours, among States of the African region and foster a better understanding of regional perspectives on space security. The event brought together a diverse range of experts, and provided the opportunity for an informal discussion around current challenges to space security and stability, and the role that norms, rules, and principles can play in keeping space a peaceful domain.
This report summarises diverse perspectives of threats to space systems from the African region to delegates and participants to the OEWG. It will be useful to delegates and participants of the subsequent OEWG sessions, and space security policy and academic experts.
