    Title

    National Space Legislation – Harmonisation and Enforcement

    Description

    National space law is a constitutive element of the overall framework of space law. It details the principles and general norms of space law, ensuring their applicability and enforcement at the national level. Through this, they become directly applicable to natural and legal persons falling within the jurisdiction of a particular state. In the recent course of time, many countries have adopted national legislation relating to space activities. This session invites authors to submit papers with a particular focus on how emerging national space legislation is aligned with the principles of international space law. This includes considerations of whether differences in national space law provisions are of particular importance to ensure the coherent enforcement of space law, and how differences in national approaches might affect execution of space activities, both nationally and internationally. It also seeks contributions that analyse the enforcement of provisions under national space law, particularly in the light of international character of many space activities involving cooperation of organisations from various countries, as well as the ongoing commercialisation of space activities
