Space Law and Commercialization of Outer Space

Space Law and the Commercialization of Outer Space

The University of Arizona James E. Rogers College of Law is pleased to host Frans von der Dunk, professor of space law from the University of Nebraska. Join us as Von der Dunk presents "Space Law and the Commercialization of Outer Space: Towards a Global Playing Field." The commercialization of space activities is reaching new heights due to manufacturing, satellite communications, launching, remote sensing, satellite navigation applications, new space, impending space tourism and space mining activities. This discussion will examine current international space law, which focuses on states and their rights and obligations, therefore leaving national law to ensure proper inclusion of the private sector into that global legal system. Is a global playing field emerging? Will a fragmented set of national or state specific laws ultimately occur?
