Chapter Summary

The formulation of solutions to current global challenges promotes the role of law in the maintenance of transnational and international peace and security. The evolution of international space law has drawn many lessons from recent developments in comparable fields of the law, notably from the Antarctic régime. Any proposed dispute settlement mechanism would do well to borrow positive developments from successful experiences in transnational, international and domestic dispute settlement procedures. The establishment of a workable sector-specific dispute settlement mechanism for outer space not only builds on recent successful examples in international environmental law and the law of the sea. It also provides an opportunity for space law to contribute to the progressive advancement of the law in general, and dispute settlement in particular. The use of legal mechanisms for the peaceful settlement of disputes is also reflective of the ascendency of the rule of law in international and transnational relations.

Keywords: Antarctic régime; dispute settlement mechanism; international space law; law of the sea; outer space
