Open-ended working group on reducing space threats

Overview

Pursuant to General Assembly resolution 76/231, the open-ended working group on reducing space threats through norms, rules and principles of responsible behaviours convened its organizational session on 7 and 9 February 2022 at the Palais des Nations, United Nations Office at Geneva. The first session will be held from 9 to 13 May 2022 at the same venue.

Prior to establishing the open-ended working group, the General Assembly, in its resolution 75/36, requested the Secretary-General to seek the views of Member States on the further development and implementation of norms, rules and principles of responsible behaviours and on the reduction of the risks of misunderstanding and miscalculations with respect to outer space. The report of the Secretary-General and the views submitted by Member States are available on the website of the Office for Disarmament Affairs.

Registration for the second substantive session, to be held from 12 to 16 September 2022 is now available through Indico. Please refer to the Information on participation page for further details.

Further information will be posted on this page as it becomes available.
