RUDN University Space Week

October 4-7, 2021, the University will host RUDN University Space Week for the first time. A series of panel discussions with prominent representatives of the space science will be organized within 4 days.

In 2021, despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, there was a boom in space activities: the landing of the Perseverance rover on Mars, the launch of the first module of the Tiangong space station, a series of suborbital human flights into space, which gave a new round to the era of space tourism. These events affect not only the development of humanity, but the evolution of space law.
On December 6, 1999, the UN General Assembly proclaimed World Space Week as an annual holiday. This event is celebrated every year from October 4 to 10. The choice of the period is based on two important dates in the history of cosmonautics: the launch of the first artificial satellite of the Earth and the signing of the Outer Space Treaty of 1967. The purpose of this event is to celebrate the contribution of space science and technology to improving human living conditions. This idea inspires students, contributes to the formation of future specialists, and demonstrates significant public support for space activities.

October 4-7, 2021, within the framework of the World Space Week, the Zhukov Center for Space Law of the Department of International Law will hold together with the RUDN University Engineering Academy - RUDN University Space Week. The event format includes a series of online lectures, discussion panels and Q&A sessions. Among the outstanding participants and partners of the event are representatives of the International Institute of Space Law (IISL, Paris), Moon Village Association (Vienna, Austria), Airbus Defence and Space (Leiden, the Netherlands), Eutelsat (Paris, France), Endurosat (Sofia, Bulgaria), International Organization of Space Communications «Intersputnik», Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), National Institute of Space Research (INPE, São Paulo, Brazil), Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences, Russian Centre for Science and Culture in Mumbai, McGill University (Montreal, Canada), University of Hong Kong, Flinders University (Adelaide, Australia), ROSCOSMOS Academy. At the question-and-answer sessions, you can ask any questions: is it possible to buy a plot on the Moon, when will the space elevator be built and will space buses be created?

The working language of the event is English, simultaneous translation is not provided.

Latest episode of the #spacelaw Podcast now live - this time I get to talk to the marvelous Eytan Tepper and Christopher Whitehead about their article "Moon Inc". What would it look like if we gave legal personality for the Moon to govern the resources now and for future generations? Based on NZ legal precedence and Indigenous principles of custodianship

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 ex*****on 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.
