Plenary 3: Space Law and Policy
Day: Wednesday 18 May 2022
Time: 09:00 - 10:10
Given the nature of the space industry and its actual global development, especially in respect of (i) the new space, (ii) dual-use technologies and industrial development, (iii) the United Nations (UN) Treaties and Conventions, and (iv) national space law that is needed to govern the use of outer space; legal and policy considerations must be given to these important factors. Emerging countries are not necessarily familiar with this domain, and these can easily be ignored in the establishment phase of national or regional space programs. The Session focus will be on:
- Understanding the "new space", the importance of the participation of the private sector in the space industry, the importance of the appropriate policy and law to develop an adequate environment.
- Understanding the key policy drivers for the space ecosystem and the use of a national space program and space policies to achieve a new source of wealth and quality of life.
- Highlighting the relevance of UN Treaties and Conventions applied to the development of new space, the space industry, and space ecosystems.
- Creating awareness on the need for national/regional space legislation to ensure space industry and activities are conducted in accordance with UN treaties and that these are integrated into the global space community.
