    Title

    Recent Developments in Space Law with Particular Focus on Space Debris Remediation

    Description

    The pollution of the most important orbits by space debris belongs to the pressing challenges for the international community. As a consequence a set of non-binding principles on space debris mitigation were drafted and agreed upon. Now the even greater challenge is the elimination of the waste from the orbits. In view of new existing technologies contributions are encouraged that highlight a possible legal framework for space debris remediation. Space debris remediation will be the special focus of this panel that moreover invites other contributions containing recent challenges for space legislation.
