Space Law at 50: Past, Present and Future

  • Johns Hopkins SAIS 1740 Massachusetts Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20036 United States (map)

This year marks the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Outer Space Treaty, the first major international treaty or convention in the domain of space law. On this occasion, Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) Steven M. Schneebaum International Law Society and SAIS International Law and Organizations Program will host a conference on space law. It will bring together academic and practical perspectives of the development of space law, and allow academics and practitioner in the front of the field to exchange their views.

The conference will incorporate two panels, the first of which, titled "The Outer Space Treaty and Its Impact on Space Law", will focus on the Outer Space Treaty itself, its impacts during the last fifty years on space development, and the future of the Treaty in the context of the revitalization of space exploration.
