The next Yokosuka Council on Asia-Pacific Studies  (YCAPS)-JUMP seminar will take place on Wednesday, June 5, 2019, in Yokosuka. “Space, the Final Domain (Star Trek or Star Wars?)” will focus on the inherent instability and chaotic frontier that is outer space. How does space matters to our everyday’s lives? Why is “freedom of space” (maintaining the stability, sustainability, and free access to and use of space for all) important to the world? What contributes to stability and conversely instability in space (conceptual framework)? How can America and its allies and partners (through the developing U.S. Space Force) mitigate space instability and strengthen stability in space and safeguard their national interests in space?

The seminar will be led by Capt. Tuan Pham, who is the Assistant Chief for Staff for Intelligence to Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Japan. He is a Navy Maritime Strategist, Strategic Planner, China Hand (master-level), and seasoned China Watcher with over two decades of professional experience in the Indo-Pacific. He is widely published in international relations and national security affairs. He has written eight professional policy articles on U.S. space policy and strategy, U.S. Space Force, China’s space ambitions and military space program, and the conceptual framework of space stability and instability. His most recent work “U.S. Space Force Needs Policy and Strategy Parts 1-3” was published in the Center for International Maritime Security last February. The views expressed during the presentation are his own (off-the-record), and do not reflect those of the Navy, Department of Defense, or U.S. government.
