The Space Policy Institute partnered with the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Foundation and the Japan Foundation Center for Global Partnership on this public seminar to discuss: Space in the Abe-Trump Era. The seminar followed the sixth meeting of the U.S.-Japan Space Forum in Washington, D.C. in January, where American and Japanese experts from private sector, academia, and government met to discuss the current role of space in the U.S.-Japan relationship. At the event hosted at GWU, members of the U.S. Japan Space Forum discussed American and Japanese collaboration on space, focusing on evolving threats that underscore why it is so important. In addition, emerging technologies and new space actors were assess, and challenges for reforming these new entrants were discussed.
