“Threats, Risks and Sustainability – Answers by Space” is now available as volume 2 in the book series “Studies in Space Policy” edited by ESPI and published by SpringerWien NewYork.
Building on a conference organised by ESPI in December 2007 in Vienna, this book provides an interdisciplinary analysis/perspectives on how space can contribute to solving problems of modern society.
More than twenty internationally recognised decision-makers and researchers have contributed to this volume, which is unique in its approach in that it provides overviews on crucial sectors like security, environment, transport, knowledge, energy and resources and adds experts’ views on how space can cope with the problems in these fields.
The volume is edited by Kai-Uwe Schrogl, Charlotte Mathieu and Agnieszka Lukaszczyk. ESPI Research Fellow Charlotte Mathieu was responsible for the project and Blandina Baranes supported the editorial process.
