International Workshop
Convened by the Centre for International Law, Conflict and Crisis and the Centre for Military Studies of the University of Copenhagen

Since the launch of Sputnik 1 by the Soviet Union in 1957, outer space has been an environment with the dual potential to ignite or quell international conflicts. These concerns dominated the legal and political agendas of early spacefaring nations. The Cold War catalysed the need for the drafting and ratification of the UN space treaties providing the current legal regime for outer space. However, in the 21st Century, the nature and dynamics of conflict are changing. Technological advances, the rise of non-state actors, and the increased duality of space systems are all contributing to the evolving concept of conflict. These changes are occurring faster than the law can address them. This workshop will consider the changing nature of conflict within the ongoing technical, legal, and political developments in the field.

Venue: University of Copenhagen, The Faculty of Law, Southern Campus, Conference / flex room, ground floor, room 8A-0-57, Njalsgade 76, DK-2300 Copenhagen S
Date: 28 April 2017
