AbstractAuthor's information

    The International Institute of Air and Space Law (“IIASL”) at Leiden University in the Netherlands has offered its Master of Advanced Studies in Air and Space Law since 2000. Each year, students from all over the world join this program and engage in an intense year of studies as a highly diverse group in terms of geography, gender, age and background. Legal and policy aspects of space resource utilization (“SRU”) forms a prominent part of the teaching program and is run during several consecutive days of teaching activities. After students receive an introductory overview of scientific aspects of SRU, an in-depth overview of relevant provisions of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty and the 1979 Moon Agreement is provided. The Hague International Space Resource Governance Working Group and the 20 ‘Building Blocks’ it adopted in November 2019 is also discussed. Finally, an interactive class exercise is held, whereby three groups of students debate several questions from different perspectives before reporting to the full class. Because students are encouraged to take on the perspectives of various stakeholders, interesting and original views are presented and offer a useful contribution to the international debate on SRU. In this paper, the staff and students of the IIASL explain and assess the interactive and multi-faceted educational method used. The student’s approaches to the questions are outlined and the outcome of their discussions are presented.

    As in previous years, this third Progress Report provides an update on the developments of The Hague International Space Resources Governance Working Group. It focuses on the results of the last meeting of its first phase, which ended in December 2017 and provides an overview of the expected activities in its second phase from 2018-2019.
    Following a very brief recap of the purpose and functioning of the Working Group, the paper will focus on the major milestone achieved at the end of the first phase, namely the “Draft Building Blocks for the Development of an International Framework on Space Resource Activities”. The Building Blocks were formulated as a basis for negotiations on a future governance system for the use of space resources and were widely made available in order to gather feedback from the international community at large, the results of which will be presented.
    The paper will also report on other progress made during the second phase of the Working Group, such as the establishment of a technical panel and a socio-economic panel and the results of the fifth face-to-face meeting.
    Lastly, the paper provides insight into the prospects for a successful conclusion of the activities of the Working Group and the way forward toward an international framework for the governance of space resources.
    All authors are closely involved with the creation and activities of the Working Group.
