    Title

    Policy, Legal, Institutional and Economic Aspects of Space Debris Detection, Mitigation and Removal

    Description

    This session will deal with the non-technical aspect of space debris mitigation and removal, and may also consider issues relative to planetary defence against NEOs impact threats. Political, legal and institutional aspects include the role of IADC and UNCOPUOS and other multilateral bodies. Economic issues including insurance, financial incentives and funding for space debris mitigation and removal. The role of international cooperation in addressing these issues will be considered.
