  • Australia’s initiatives on the commercial space side,
  • National law – what are the important issues to consider for each country and why?,
  • International law – how the initiatives of one or several countries can be an input to broader discussions and why we need broad ‘buy in’ on the really big issues,
  • Civil Society – how industry, academia and broader civil society have important voices on space in many ways?

Prof. Freeland also answered relevant questions from the audience.
