Outer Space Law: Legal Policy and Practice

Cover of Outer Space Law: Legal Policy and PracticePartner at Fenwick Elliott, Professor Nicholas Gould has written a chapter on dispute resolution in the publication Outer Space Law: Legal Policy and Practice released in October 2017. This chapter relates to satellites, space hardware and cross border issues.  International treaties are considered along with the Outer Space Arbitration Rules produced by the Permanent Court of Arbitration and based on the 2010 UNCITRAL Model Rules.

The book discusses the political relevance of outer space which continues to be recognised by nations, particularly as the strategic benefit of Earth observation from outer space remains an important national security tool. Furthermore, the distinction between the military and non-military uses of space is becoming increasingly blurred, resulting in potential conflict between nations in order to protect their space assets.

The current outer space treaties are to a large degree outdated and unable to deal with legal issues arising out of the military and commercial use of outer space, which will lead to an increase in legal issues related to outer space. This book covers the key issues relevant to the space sector, with an emphasis on the practical application of those issues.
