An Introduction to International Space Law
Hosted by the Journal of International Law, this talk by CERL Acting Executive Director Dr. Cassandra Steer will give an overview of international space law, and provide background on the legal and political issues at stake when we consider
the weaponization of outer space and the potential for an armed conflict to take place in our near-Earth environment. “Star Wars” may be closer in reality than you think, but there are steps that can be taken to prevent it. The Journal of
International Law is hosting this lunchtime symposium as a lead-up to the conference organized by CERL titled “The Weaponization of Outer Space: Legal and Ethical Boundaries”, to be held in April.
