In this week’s Space Cafè WebTalk, Prof. Dr. Ram S. Jakhu, Acting Director of the Institute of Air and Space Law at McGill University, Montreal, Canada talked about the urgent need for more law and institutions to keep space utilisation sustainable, conflict-free and for the benefit of all nations and people.

He addressed the following three questions:

  • What are the projections for next 10 years for global space activities?
  • What are the challenges in making space utilization sustainable, conflict-free and for the benefit of all?
  • What should be done to meet these challenges and how the suggested solutions should be implemented in practice?
