A multidisciplinary analysis of planetary defense from asteroids as the key national policy ensuring further development
The objective is to create a position of the Czech Republic in the planetary defense policy against asteroids through multidisciplinary research during and by the end of its progress. We plan to keep the policy sustainable by initiating an interest of businesses in asteroid mining that will be supported by the public sector as a national interest with the vision of the cosmopolitan humankind future and by the recommendations on how to alter the international law regime in the outer space. We will render national interests as non-conflicting toward other states and as a path to global cosmopolitan order. This can be achieved by forming of the new international cooperative security regime and by the new regime for the asteroid commercial exploitation without violating international law.
Centre for Governance of Emerging Technologies
The aim of the GET as a field of research is to explore the relationship between technology and international policy from an interdisciplinary perspective, from the theory of international relations, philosophy, and sociology to interaction with international law. Among the key research topics is cyber and space security, with an emphasis on planetary defense, asteroid mining, and the use of power lasers for a variety of space applications ranging from orbit cleaning to breakthrough interstellar travel projects. The Centre deals with activities ranging from basic theoretical research to policy-oriented work (e.g. the formulation of the emergence of an international security regime for the peaceful use of laser technology in space). Its members regularly inform the public in the media, organize public meetings and international workshops that combine technology development and political science, publish policy papers and/or act as experts in addition to carrying out diplomatic missions to the UN and other international organizations.
