Studies in Space Policy

When China Goes to the Moon...

Authors: Aliberti, Marco

  • Addresses China´s possible ambition to send its taikonauts to the Moon and elaborates on its implications on an international level
  • Disentangles China´s space strategy from a wide range of perspectives and provides novel and in-depth understanding of the underlying philosophy of China´s political behavior, both domestically and internationally and how space is instrumentalised in this respect
  • Investigates how Chinese determination to go to the Moon could affect the rest of the institutional landscape, performing a critical analysis on the much-discussed scenario of a new space race for the re-conquest of the Moon and accompanies the analysis with an informed assessment of alternative scenarios where more cooperative pathways to future space exploration might become possible
  • Offers the first holistic reflection on the opportunities and challenges Europe will be facing vis-à-vis Chinese space ambitions and assesses the different strategies available to European stakeholders in this regard

About this book

This book is about China’s ambitions in its most complex and internationally visible space endeavor, namely its human space exploration programme. It provides a comprehensive reflection on China´s strategic direction and objectives in space, including in particular those set forth in its human spaceflight programme and analyses the key domestic and external factors affecting the country’s presumed manned lunar ambitions. The objective of the book is to disentangle the opportunities and challenges China´s space ambitions are creating for other spacefaring nations and for Europe in particular. It therefore includes an in-depth analysis of possible European postures towards China in space exploration and seeks to stimulate a debate on future space strategies in the broader context of world politics.
