Session 7: Space Diplomacy, Law and Regulation
As Space evolves from being the domain of national governments to include civil and commercial entities, new challenges emerge for governance and regulation. What earthly concepts may apply in Space? How does Australia fit into global Space governance? This panel considered the diplomatic, legal and regulatory parameters within which Australia conducts space activities. It also interrogated the relationship between diplomacy and industry, law and strategy, regulation and ethics, in the context of issues that will come to define Australia’s relationship to space and with other spacefaring nations in the years to come.
