"Space Security 2009: Moving towards a Safer Space Environment" is the eighth annual conference held by the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research on the issues of space security, the peaceful uses of outer space and the prevention of an arms race in outer space.

At this year's conference, presenters and participants addressed five primary topics: architectures for improving space security, ensuring space sustainability through confidence- and security-building measures, elements of treaty-based security, international law and space security, and emerging issues for space sustainability.
