In April 2011, Congress passed the Wolf amendment to put speed bumps in front of possible cooperation with China in space, and has reaffirmed the policy annually in subsequent legislation. Ten years later, sufficient time has passed to ask, did it accomplish what it set out to do? In order to understand how this legislation has shaped U.S. national interests and activities, SWF will host a virtual panel discussion which looks at the original intent of the legislation and how it has evolved; presents U.S. experiences in carrying out its requirements; examines consequences of the legislation; and analyzes possible paths forward for engagement with China in space.
Conversational keynote with former NASA Administrator Charles Frank Bolden Jr.
Followed by a panel of experts, including:
Marco Aliberti, European Space Policy Institute
Scott Pace, Space Policy Institute
Jon Lowet, National Committee on US-China Relations
Kevin Pollpeter, CNA
Makena Young, CSIS
Victoria Samson, Secure World Foundation (Moderator)
