SPACE LAW, JUSTICE, AND SOCIAL EQUITY

Convenors

This stream seeks to provide a forum for discussing the evolving landscape of space law. As outer space activities increasingly involve private companies, the focus has expanded beyond traditional geopolitical and commercial considerations. Now, we're delving into the social and legal implications of these activities, particularly concerning justice and equity.

 

In the current context, the intersection of space law, justice, and social equity takes centre stage. The global scenario reflects social injustices and inequalities, and these issues extend into space activities. The concept of a 'space divide' highlights how certain nations and communities, lacking resources, face challenges, leading to an uneven distribution of opportunities. As we stand on the brink of a new era in space exploration, it's imperative to integrate perspectives on justice and social equity into space law for a more equitable future in outer space.
