In this week’s Space Cafè WebTalk, Mahmoud Abu Wasel, Vice-President of The Hague Institute for Global Justice talked about the new space initiative of the institute.

With the rapid increase in the private sectors race to space and governments attempting to keep up, we are witnessing the new age of the space race – one which will make momentous changes in a shorter time span than ever seen before. But with this new space race, comes the realization that law and justice are crucial to the maintenance and sustainability of our future. The Hague Institute for Global Justice has been operating for a decade on issues at the critical intersection of peace, law, and justice; but with the evolution of the space sector, new issues have arisen that will need to be solved. The Hague Institute for Global Justice has recently launched its space project that will deal with the implementation of law and justice in space, and will act as a platform for peace in all space activities. Mahmoud Abu Wasel spoke on the necessity for the rule of law and justice in space, and shedded details on the issues that lead to the initiation of the new project.

Mahmoud Abu Wasel also answered relevant questions from the audience.

This Space Cafè WebTalk, held on 12 January 2021, was hosted by Torsten Kriening, publisher of SpaceWatch.Global. 

SpaceWatch.Global is a Switzerland-based digital magazine and portal for those interested in space and the far reaching impact of the space sector.
