    Title

    Remediation of Space Debris: A Fundamental Legal Challenge?

    Description

    Space Debris Remediation is a necessary measure to be set-up and effectively enforced to ensure that space activities can be safely and sustainably conducted mid- and long-term. This understanding is shared by the international community. However, so far, the political will of the stakeholders involved resulted only in non-binding “soft law” adopted on the international level. This session invites authors to submit papers bringing forward and elaborating the discussion of soft law vs hard law regulatory mechanisms, and of their effectiveness in particular within the area of space debris remediation. Contributions analysing the value and the ways of adopting and enforcing internationally uniform standards regarding space debris remediation are also welcome. Invited speaker Dr. Catherine Doldirina
