IISL-ISIL INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON THE LAW OF OUTER SPACE, JAKARTA, INDONESIA, 6-7 June 2011
The Role of Law in an Asian Space Age: Institutions & Applications

On 6-7 June 2011, the IISL will co-host a conference with the Indonesian Society of International Law (ISIL). The conference will be held at Universitas Pelita Harapan (UPH), a leading private university in Indonesia, located in a suburb of Jakarta, and follows the 2011 Asia-Pacific Regional Round of the Manfred Lachs Space Law Moot Court Competition, that will take place from 3-5 June at the same location.

The conference will feature four sessions focusing on the following themes:

Session 1: Rule-Based Governance in Outer Space - Currents, Constraints and Contemporary Transformations
The panel will address current debates over the legal principles of outer space, focusing on how accepted principles enable or constrain developments in space or how technological change creates pressure to change legal rules.

Session 2: Regional Organisations in Asia
The panel will address issues related to recent developments in regional institution-building and the potential for additional regional fora.

Session 3: Satellite Applications for the Betterment of Humanity
The panel will address legal aspects of satellite functions, particularly remote sensing, which are used to collect information, monitor and improve the natural and built environments.

Session 4: Commercial Space and Telecommunication Satellite Operations
The panel will focus on private law issues pertaining to the operation of telecommunications satellites such as, for example, those relating to insuring and financing telecommunications satellite operations and the relationship between the satellite owner/operator and the service provider.
