    Title

    Dispute Settlement in Space Law: Are We Ready for the Commercial Challenge?

    Description

    The session seeks input on the legal challenges posed by potential disputes arising from space activities of any kind, be these exploitation of near-Earth space, the quest for space exploration and settlement, or terrestrial implications of ever increasing and varied space activities. It invites authors to submit abstracts focussing on the analysis and discussion of issues related to extra-territorial nature of space activities, their international or transboundary character, the necessity to effectively adjudicate potential disputes, available or required mechanisms for procedures and institutions, as well as effective enforcement of such decisions.
