Download and read online Space Law Views of the Future in PDF and EPUB The utilization of outer space is fraught with dangers. In an effort to guarantee, as much as possible, the rights of victims of injury or damage caused by outer space objects, the United Nations, through its committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, adopted the 1972 Convention on International Liability for Damage Caused by Space Objects. The present volume is the first indepth analysis of the Liability Convention. In Part One, the author provides an article-by-article commentary on the Convention. In Part Two, the implementation of the Convention is reviewed in the light of the events surrounding the 1978 Cosmos 954 incident when a nuclear powered Soviet satellite disintegrated over northern Canada spreading radioactive debris over a vast area. In Part Three, the author investigates the role played by the Convention in the development of international tort law within the context of the work of the International Law Commission on the question of 'International Liability for Injurious Consequences Arising Out of Acts Not Prohibited by International Law'. Finally, in Part Four, the contribution of the Convention to general International Law is examined.

Download and read online Outlook on Space Law Over the Next 30 Years in PDF and EPUB This book is neither a historical treatise on the genesis and development of space law, nor a survey of the corpus, nor even a work of legal makebelieve, but simply an essay pursuing a line of enquiry opened up by the members of the European Centre for Space Law. It sets out to chart future trends in the light of the emergence of space law as a branch of international law and of the development of space activities themselves (new activities, new players, interpenetration of space law and national laws), a branch in which the rules and forms of international cooperation acquire a new dimension, transcending the concept of 'global' law. It is essentially prompted by a deep aspiration to see a rebirth - a revival - of that law.

Download and read online The Environmental Element in Space Law in PDF and EPUB While decades of space ventures have led to significant technological advances, space activities have also brought increasing environmental problems. This book examines the current international legal regimes in space law and environmental law in order to ascertain their applicability and efficacy in addressing environmental threats in the space sector. The research suggests mechanisms which could improve environmental protection in the sector and strengthen the environmental element in space law. These mechanisms include a variety of norm-setting strategies used in international environmental management. Special attention is drawn to the potential of environmental impact assessment in the space sector and to dispute resolution procedures. Like other areas of human activities, the space sector should accommodate both economic interests and environmental protection in line with the principle of sustainable development
