Outlook on space law over the next 30 years : essays published for the 30th anniversary of the Outer Space Treaty

This book is neither a historical treatise on the genesis & development of space law, nor a survey of the corpus, nor even a work of legal makebelieve, but simply an essay pursuing a line of enquiry opened up by the members of the European Centre for Space Law. It sets out to chart future trends in the light of the emergence of space law as a branch of international law & of the development of space activities themselves (new activities, new players, interpenetration of space law & national laws), a branch in which the rules & forms of international cooperation acquire a new dimension, transcending the concept of 'global' law. It is essentially prompted by a deep aspiration to see a rebirth a revival of that law
