Abstract:

This paper identifies the inconsistency between the discourse of transatlantic security community and the practice of transatlantic space politics, and argues that the trend of global governance did not cause power shift from states to supranational or non-state actors in transatlantic space politics. Space is a highly security-sensitive policy domain, in which we expect Europe and the U.S. to cooperate mutual-trustfully in order to achieve common security objectives of the transatlantic security community. However, the essence of transatlantic space politics, clearly displayed by the documents and practice of Europe and the U.S., is pragmatic and flexible balance of strategic self-interests according to their respective cost-effective calculation. The constitution-like character of the transatlantic security community does not make their competition over material power unnecessary. Political autonomy and seizing pivotal positions are primary concerns of Europe and the U.S. in transatlantic space politics due to the absence of an overarching central authority. The governance for transatlantic space politics remains state-dominated and geopolitically demarcated.
