Description


We are witnessing a new golden age of space conquest. During the Cold War the United States and the Soviet Union had sought to place their space exploits in the framework of international law. Today that trend towards accountability is being reversed. Individualistic logic is prevailing and the founding principles of international space law are increasingly being put aside. Legal scholars and practitioners must now find a balance between the development of space activities funded by the private sector and the interests of all states. Responding to this challenge, this bilingual volume collects the leading contributions to the 2017 Summer Courses session of the Centre for Studies and Research in International Law and International Relations. The essays are structured around two objectives: to analyse the foundations and principles of space law since its creation, and to discern its direction over the next fifty years. Featuring original work from leading young legal scholars from around the world, this collection explores a little-known area of law and seeks to support space exploration for the benefit of all humanity.

Nous assistons un nouvel ge d'or de la conqu te spatiale. Durant la guerre froide, les tats-Unis et l'Union sovi tique avaient cherch placer leurs exploits spatiaux dans le cadre du droit international. Aujourd'hui la tendance s'est invers e, la logique individualiste semble l'emporter. Certains grands principes du droit international de l'espace sont mis de c t ou r interpr t's par la pratique. Le juriste doit trouver ici un quilibre entre le d veloppement des activit's spatiales soutenu par des fonds priv's et la prise en compte de l'int r t de tous les Etats. Afin de r pondre ce d fi, ce volume bilingue regroupe les travaux du Centre d' tude et de recherche de la session 2017. Deux approches scientifiques sont refl t es dans cet ouvrage. La premi re analyse les fondements et les grands principes du droit de l'espace depuis 1967, date de la signature du Trait de l'espace. La seconde propose une tude plus prospective pour determiner l' volution du droit de l'espace dans les prochaines cinquante ann es. Ce volume permet de participer au rayonnement international d'une discipline peu connue et poser le cadre juridique des activit's spatiales en d veloppement.
