Law and Peace in Space: Introducing the McGill Handbook of International Law

The prospect of a possible armed conflict in outer space looms large in international politics, with potentially devastating consequences around the world. But it is not necessary.

This episode of Space Café Canada will explore Volume I of McGill’s new Handbook on International Law Applicable to Military Activities in Outer Space (McGill Handbook). Inspired by a future where all space activities are conducted in accordance with the rules-based international order for the benefit of all, the McGill Handbook clarifies the international law that applies both in times of peace and in times of tension that pose a challenge to peace. Developed over six years, this first volume of the Handbook contains 52 rules agreed by consensus by experts from around the world.

Ongoing political and technical developments in outer space have raised the stakes for the continued peaceful use of outer space. Join us for a detailed discussion of how the process and rules adopted by the McGill Handbook can help keep the peace and the questions for the future that remain unanswered.
