The United Nations presently has five effective international space treaties, specifically the Outer Space Treaty of 1967, Space Liability Convention of 1972, Space Rescue Agreement of 1968, Space Registration Convention of 1975, and Moon Agreement of 1979. Though, with recent competition and movements to mine and use of natural resources from such entities as the moon, asteroids, etc., these outmoded treaties no longer address current advancements. It is vital that new research is undertaken to urge and progress new space laws and policies that reinforce international cooperation and joint undertakings into the exploitation of natural resources from outer space.

Global Issues Surrounding Outer Space Law and Policy, (PDF) grants a general understanding of the present issues and methods of solution in the field of outer space law and policy in the global society. It proposes a revision of the five international space treaties and provides a new International Space Agency (ISA) that would use international cooperation and an International Court of Air and Space Law to encourage the speed of work and fairness in trials of air and space law cases. Moreover, solutions for the cooperation of the global community towards joint undertakings and utilization of natural resources in celestial bodies is explored. This ebook is ideal for lawyers, government officials, space agencies, professors, academicians, researchers, students, and anyone looking to comprehend the complicated problems and methods of solution in international space law and policy.
