Chapter Summary

The increasing utilization of outer space also means increasing environmental threats. It has become obvious that the effective management of environmental problems related to space activities is impossible using the current international law of outer space only. Degradation of the space environment is already a severe problem, with the potential to threaten not only the exploration and exploitation activities of the present generation but also the opportunities of generations to come to use outer space and its resources. Principles of international environmental law should be put to more effective use in outer space in other ways, too. Despite the various problems in resorting to such principles at least the general idea of sustainable development as a comprehensive view of integrating economic and environmental interests should be accepted as a starting point for all space activities. Dispute resolution is relevant for all space activities, environmental management of outer space included.

Keywords:dispute resolution; international environmental law; space activities
