Norm Setting and Transparency and Confidence-Building in Space Governance

Thursday 7 April 2022

Hitchens, Theresa. 2020. In War and Peace in Outer Space: Law, Policy, and Ethics, edited by Cassandra Steer and Matthew Hersch, 55-89. 1st edition. New York: Oxford University Press.

In brief, it sheds light on the difficulties that follow when states have to negotiate and reach an agreement on complex topics. Particularly, in space, there are no legitimate legal rights to be made, so how do we secure fair access despite the unequal military, economic and technological capabilities?
