About Episode 97

The integration of commercial space with national security space promises to save money and propel government innovation. However, in a conflict, such integration could blur the lines on what is a legitimate target. Is this integration a violation of the law of armed conflict for space? Join policy analyst Sam Wilson from The Center for Space Policy & Strategy as he talks to Professor David Koplow from Georgetown Law about Koplow’s recent research exploring these questions.

Discussion based on Prof Koplow’s paper: “Reverse Distinction: A US Violation of the Law of Armed Conflict in Space”.
