International Space and Cyber Security: Is International Law (Finally) Going Extra-terrestrial?

5th December 2013

Space is increasingly having a practical impact on our lives. Issues ranging from the fast-approaching prospect of commercial space flights, the growing number of telecommunication satellites, space races between major and emerging powers and the fact that space may provide the next theatre of conflict - all raise acute questions relating to the regulation of space and cyber security. Although international law has been dealing with these issues for many decades, the time has come for international space law to yet again feature as a priority on research and policy agendas.

This event will discuss these topical issues from both academic and practical perspectives.

The seminar will be followed by a drinks reception.

This event has been convened by Dr Andraž Zidar, Dorset Senior Research Fellow in Public International Law.
