Eytan Tepper together with Jean-Frédéric Morin of Laval University are organizing a workshop titled "The Governance of Space Exploration Corporations" that will take place on 23-24 August 2021 in Quebec City, Canada.

The Workshop will explore the issue of corporations that exercise quasi-sovereign powers using the case study of space exploration corporations. The Workshop will question the traditional binary public-private divide and explore avenues to regulate such corporations in a way that takes into account their public nature and their exploitation of resources shared by humankind.

🔥🚀 A very fruitful day for space in Europe as the Space Council took place today !

The Space Council is a joint and concomitant meeting of the EU Council and of the ESA Council at Ministerial level, established by the Framework Agreement of 2004, to coordinate the progressive development of an overall European Space Policy.

On this occasion, Member States of both Organisations unanimously approved the EU Council Conclusions and the ESA Council Resolution on “Orientations on the European contribution in establishing key principles for the global space economy” 🚀

Dr. Marco Ferrazzani, ESA Legal Counsel, Head of the Legal Services Department and long-standing ECSL Board member, actively took part in the preparations and drafting of the decisions taken today.
💫 He highlighted: “This year Space Council deliberated on a European policy orientation for a competitive European space economy, based on autonomy, security and resilience, and at the same time leveraging on space business. This means for us more analysis and work to prepare and introduce adapted legal and financial tools in the space arena and in international regulations to secure European space programmes, attracting public and private investment, opening to partnerships and to international cooperation. In realising such objectives, European public actors and investors will require even more the expertise of legal professionals.
We are ready for that challenge!"

IISL Member Cassandra Steer together with Matthew Hersch edited a book titled “War and Peace in Outer Space” that delves into legal, policy and ethical concerns over the increased weaponization of outer space and the potential for space-based conflict in the very near future.
They argue that we have returned to a multipolar world in which the traditional great powers are once again competing, and the role of commercial actors is unprecedented. Interdisciplinary experts from Africa, Australia, China, Europe and North America discuss these issues, and look to possible solutions in space law, space diplomacy, and international cooperation. The experience of this team provides a collection that is unmatched in any academic publication and will be required reading for anyone interested in war and peace in outer space.

The second edition of the IAF GNF Space Conversations Series is coming soon!

Join us on Wednesday 25 November 2020 at 14:00 CET, for an exciting IAF GNF Space Conversations Series organized by the IAF Administrative Committee on Developing Countries and Emerging Communities (ACDCEC) on the topic of “Bridging the Space Divide for Developing Countries and Emerging Communities”.

The Administrative Committee on Developing Countries and Emerging Communities (ACDCEC) has been formally established to advance the Federation's work with respect to developing countries and emerging communities. The primary objectives of the Committee with respect to serving the needs of Developing Countries and Emerging Communities is to:
• Share knowledge and provide expert support,
• Produce tangible benefits
• Promote active participation in the IAF events and activities.
In deliberating about how best to advance these objectives, the Committee has identified four key work streams, namely, (i) optimize the cost benefit in terms of affordability and accrued value, (ii) improve communications and create awareness of the IAF offerings, (iii) advocate for a better understanding of the full space related benefits; and (iv) increase the representation of experts in IAF events and activities.

We invite experts and interested individuals and organizations from developing countries and emerging communities to join this Global Networking Forum, as the Committee shares what they are planning for you as well as partnership opportunities, as we put these plans into action. Your association and inputs into the work of the Committee will be instrumental in informing and shaping these plans, as we enter the implementation phase.

Don’t miss the chance to be part of the conversation and join us on 25th November via the following link: https://youtu.be/fqAVg6Mzhg4

On the second year of it´s beginning Demand a answer on the preliminary examination of Venezuela After this February 8, 2020, two years after the announcement of the beginning of the preliminary examination concerning the Venezuela case, by the Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court -ICC-, on crimes against humanity that are systematically and widespread been committed in recent years and are still committed by the regime of Nicolás Maduro, a group of lawyers and human rights defenders require this international body an immediate response. The document consigned on Wednesday, February 20 before the ICC, was signed by the former president of the United Nations Security Council, Diego Arria; the former president of the Inter-American Federation of Lawyers, Rafael Veloz; the retired deputy of the National Assembly and president of El Amparo Foundation, Walter Márquez; the president of the Democratic Platform of Venezuelans in Spain, William Cárdenas Rubio; the former ambassador of Panama in India, Alejandro Garrido; the former General Director of the Attorney´s General Office of Venezuela, Zair Mundaray; the experienced lawyer in International Criminal Courts of the University of Washington, Carlos Ramírez López; the president emeritus of the Federation of the Bar Association of Venezuela, Omar Estacio; the president of the REDES Foundation, Javier Tarazona; the former senator of the Congress of Venezuela, Edgar Florez; also by Anacelita Hernández, General Secretary of El Amparo Foundation; by Jesús Berro, academic research coordinator of the Bar Association of Tachira; Juan Manuel Guevara, Director of International Relations of El Amparo International Foundation; by Francisco Sánchez, International lawyer of the Center for Border Studies and Integration of the University of Los Andes -ULA- Táchira and by Gustavo Rodríguez, President of the Bar Association of Litigation Lawyers of Colombia, in North Santander. After recounting the actions undertaken by the European parliament, the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, by the Secretary General of the Organization of American States -OAS-, by the Foreign Ministers of Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Paraguay, Peru and Canada; by the Lima Group, by the UN Human Rights Council, among others, demanding responses to human rights violations and the execution of crimes against humanity in Venezuela, the signatories made six warnings and considerations, recalling that on December 5 2019, in its annual report to the Assembly of States Parties, the ICC prosecutor, Fatou Bensouda said that she hoped to finalize the analysis of the situation in Venezuela at the beginning of the current year. The requests The retired deputy of the Venezuelan parliament, Walter Márquez, promoter of the document, with the deputy of the National Assembly Rafael Veloz, said that considering that the International Criminal Court, according to the Rome Statute, was created not only to sanction the international crimes under its jurisdiction, but to prevent them, they requested the States parties of this statute, especially those who are members of the European Union and the OAS to join the complaint filed on September 26, 2018 by six member states before the ICC prosecutor's office, for crimes against humanity in order to initiate a formal investigation immediately. Since a reasonable time has elapsed to decide, they demand an immediate decision on the preliminary examination and the immediate start of the investigation of crimes against humanity in Venezuela, to avoid and prevent more facts that aggravate the crisis, as there is an unjustified delay in the initiation, procedure or resolution of more than 100 requests of investigation before the ICC, incurring a serious fault or serious breach of the functions of the prosecutor Bensouda, in accordance with rule 24 of the Court's Rules of Procedure and Evidence. On the other hand, the attorney William Cárdenas Rubio said that in this regard they demand that prosecutor Fatou Bensouda initiates the investigation of crimes against humanity committed in Venezuela or inhibit from continuing to know those causes, since she has more than 15 years without deciding and has knowledge of the situation since 2004 when she was deputy prosecutor, and from 2012 as a prosecutor. The signatories of the document support the complaint made by Walter Márquez against the Prosecutor of the ICC for gross negligence and breach of her duties, requesting her separation from office because they consider that she has delayed a lot to act while the humanitarian crisis in Venezuela is deepening. They urged the contries parties, complainants before the ICC, to request an immediate action by the prosecutor, in accordance with article 54.1.a of the Rome Statute, to take appropriate measures to ensure the effectiveness of the investigation and prosecution of crimes. Finally, they invite the countries that are members of the Assembly of States Parties, especially Colombia and Ecuador as members of the Rome Statute, to request that independent supervision mechanisms will be exercised on the actions of the ICC Prosecutor.
