Policy brief


A more strategic European Union in a more contested space



Space is becoming an increasingly important domain for societies and politics alike, also from a geopolitical and hence security and defence perspective.
The EU is a key actor in space, but its approach to space is changing in a more uncertain and contested geopolitical environment.
While still focused largely on the civilian aspects of space, the EU has developed a more strategic approach towards space, increasingly using the domain also for security and defence, including military, purposes.
As the EU develops quickly in a more challenging and uncertain environment, Norway needs to understand EU developments and their implications at an early stage, and work to secure participation where interests align.
