International Peace Alliance (Space)


The International Peace Alliance (Space) (the “IPA”) was founded in October 2018. IPA is an international organization co-chaired by seven of the most influential international space organizations, namely, the International Academy of Astronautics, International Astronautical Federation, International Institute of Space Law, Association of Space Explorers, International Space University, Space Foundation, Rice University’s Baker Institute’s International Space Medicine Summit. Members of IPA include space scientists, astronauts, and space medicine experts from China, US, Russia, Europe, and other countries.

Through its platform, the International Symposium on the Peaceful Use of Space Technology – Health (as known as the “IPSPACE”), IPA aims to promote international collaboration and industrial development related to the peaceful use of space technologies. By November 2022, IPA has successfully held the annual IPSPACE series symposiums for five consecutive years. 

In October 2020, IPA became an official as a member of the International Astronautical Federation (IAF). For its efforts in the global community on the peaceful uses of space, in December 2022, the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UN COPUOS) officially announced that IPA gained Observer status at the UN COPUOS.
