    Title

    28th IAA/IISL Scientific-Legal Round Table "Space and the Polar Regions (Arctic and Antarctica)" (Invited Papers)

    Description

    The Polar Regions are areas of growing geopolitical interest. While Antarctica is covered by an international agreement governing its exclusively peaceful use for scientific purposes, the Arctic is already becoming a contested area with relevance for raw materials exploitation, transport routes and security. This round table looks into space applications relevant for the Polar Regions as well as policy issues and regulatory aspects involved.
