    Title

    Current Developments in Space Law with Special Emphasis on National Space Legislation

    Description

    The rapid development of space technology and its application require appropriate regulation at the international and the national levels to ensure the long-term sustainability of outer space activities. Exchange of information and increased cooperation and coordination of regulatory issues are essential. This session is dedicated to presentations and discussions about recent developments in space law with special emphasis on national space legislation. In times of commercialization and privatization of space activities states increasingly enact or amend national space law in order to fulfil their obligations of authorization and continuous supervision. While international space law provides the legal framework and contains the main legal principles for the use of outer space, states must apply and implement them to concrete space programmes, projects, and missions. It is important to discuss the interpretation and application of concepts and terms contained in international instruments in various jurisdictions in order to identify potential inconsistencies, contradictions, or gaps. In addition, the session will analyse to what extent non-binding international instruments, such as the Long-term sustainability guidelines of the UN Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UNCOPUOS), are implemented at the national level. Particularities of national space legislation with respect to national or regional priorities, space policies and programmes will also be reflected.
