Chapter 11: The role of UNCOPUOS in the international regulation of non-governmental space activities
Restricted access

The United Nations Committee for the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space is the cradle of the five treaties on outer space and the arena wherein several resolutions of the United Nations General Assembly dealing with space activities have been drafted. It has more than seventy Member States, with more or less involvement in the space business, and several intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations as observers. This chapter seeks to review how, in almost sixty years of existence, its work has involved the representatives of the private space sector and how such involvement could be achieved in the future. Keywords: UNCOPUOS; non-State actors; global space governance; global public goods
