About This Title
This title provides a smorgasbord of interdisciplinary and international papers by experienced and knowledgeable people from the industry, international institutions, academia, and government bodies in various countries. These chapters represent the state of the art in current and future NewSpace activities, and the challenges of space law, policy, and regulation. In particular, they address existing and unresolved issues and problems, as well as those that will need to be confronted within the next decade, in order to allow a responsible use of space by all stakeholders, while integrating and facilitating the rise of NewSpace activities.
Monograph Series IV will be useful to those interested in understanding the legal and regulatory aspects of the rapidly expanding global space industry, in particular policymakers, entrepreneurs, government officials, academics, researchers, and students around the world.
