    Title

    Space Mining: National Authority? International Authority? Both?

    Description

    Space mining is a hot topic for both technical and legal discussions. While space mining is not yet feasible and the international law principles relating to its execution are a subject in themselves for debate, national legislation is being adopted to address the issues, while international discussions relating to the coordination, authorisation and other relevant issues applicable to space mining activities are taking place in parallel. This session focuses on legal and institutional aspects of establishing a regulatory regime for space mining. It invites authors to contribute to the discussion by analysing the international and national dimensions of authorising space mining activities, and by bringing forward ideas regarding the hierarchy between the national and international levels, or the need for greater synergy. Insights as to the mechanisms of allocating property rights in extracting resources in compliance with the existing principles of international space law are also welcome.
