Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book tilted The Environmental Element in Space Law contains acknowledgements and abbreviations. This work consists of six main parts. Part one contemplates the fundamental ideology of space activities, which builds upon industrial development and relies on a substantially anthropocentric worldview. Part two examines the various types of problems related to space activities which can be labelled 'environmental'. Part three proceeds to sketch the fundamental elements of environmental management of space activities by studying the current instruments of the international law of outer space and assessing their suitability for addressing environmental concerns. Part four reflects on the possibilities to use other, more distinctly environmental but not particularly space-related international legal instruments for the needs of the space sector. Part five concentrates on the prospects for developing new instruments for environmental management of the space sector. Part six concludes the book by drawing together its contributions.

Keywords:environmental management; international legal instruments; space law
