    Title

    The portrayal of Space (Law) in Media and Movies

    Description

    Science-fiction and anticipation are closely connected to the history of the film industry, since its early days, with, from time to time, incursion within the legal or political aspects related to the human adventure in outer space. Under this topic, the presentation and representation of international space law and, more generally, legal or political aspects related to space activities would be reviewed and analyzed, with regard to their relevance and exactitude and with regard to the impact they may have on the large public. Papers presented under this topic could address a particular movie or provide a general analysis through a number of movies
