UNITAR is delighted to start the new "International Law in Focus" Workshop Series that will explore cutting-edge legal topics.
The third topic to focus on will be International space Law. Space law is a relatively recent field of international law, yet in a rapid change and constant development. It covers space-related activities such as public and private space exploration, liability for damages caused by space objects, environmental
preservation and new space-related technologies. The three interactive e-workshops on space law will introduce participants to the main legal instruments governing the spacial environment and the role of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (COPUOS) to space law-making. Participants will then deepen their knowledge on national space law and space security law. Our experts will give then the necessary tools to discuss the challenges that space law is and will continue to face in the future, namely, among others, debris mitigation, space traffic and cybersecurity.
The third session of the International Law in Focus Series will focus on the International Space Law a series of 3 consequitive workshops covering.
