Meta-Geopolitics of Outer Space: An Analysis of Space Power, Security and Governance

Meta-Geopolitics of Outer Space: An Analysis of Space Power, Security and Governance takes a novel look at the geopolitics of outer space through the prism of an innovative multidimensional Meta-geopolitics framework.

One of the most distinctive features of Meta-geopolitics is its all-encompassing analysis of space power, security and geopolitical actors. In comparison with traditional geopolitical approaches, deeply grounded in geography, demography and economics, the Meta-geopolitics framework includes space and broadens the definition of space power to include additional state capacities like health, social, and domestic politics and environmental dimensions in its key components.

This framework also enables a more comprehensive assessment of the strategic orientations of major state and non-state space powers and serves as a basis for the development of a new space governance model.
This proposed space governance model employs a 'symbiotic realism' approach to international relations and a 'multi-sum' approach to global security that will enhance the space power potential of actors while ensuring its sustainability in a competitive yet globalized environment.

ENDORSEMENT

“Traditional works of geopolitics have stopped at the atmosphere's edge, grounded in geography, economics and demographics. Nayef Al-Rodhan has expanded classical geopolitical considerations to include societal, health and the environment. In this book, he elevates geopolitics into space. The result is an analysis that challenges our assumptions about power and space power.”
Michael Krepon, Co-founder of the Stimson Center, Washington, USA

“A welcome 'outside of the box' analysis of outer space, geopolitics and the foundations of space power.”
Theresa Hitchens, Director of the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR), Geneva, Switzerland

“Dr. Nayef Al-Rodhan's book provides a first rate summary of key aspects of current space policies. It also shows how space adds new and important elements to many policy areas on Earth, but also has a life of its own, as a new field of policy, strategy and geopolitics. Much of the difficulty in grasping space issues derives from this double status.”
Laurence Nardon, Senior Research Fellow and Head of the United States Program and the Space Policy Program at the Institut francais des relations internationales (IFRI), Paris, France
