    Title

    Current Developments in Space Law

    Description

    Outer Space Treaty principles of supervision and control over non-governmental space activities in a peaceful and non-military, yet sustainable context. In this session, papers are invited to address the most recent legal developments of space activities since the last congress with particular relevance to the practice of states and the space community in managing its operations. One such field is that of export control and control of dual-use goods. This has undergone some reform in the recent past, and remains a concern in the context of ensuring the sustainability of space when it comes to matters space traffic management and debris removal. This session looks at developments in the field of peaceful use of outer space in the context of export and international trade in dual use goods, and invites papers to consider the responses to common technology brought about by the call for sustainability.
