Space Arbitration Association

The last few years have seen a dramatic increase in space activities, which are expanding not only into new fields such as space tourism but also increasingly involve commercial actors.

It is to be expected that this increase in actors involved in space activities and the corresponding congestion of at least the lower orbits, will over time lead to an uptake of space-related disputes.

Given the international, highly technical, and often confidential nature of space activities, international arbitration is a uniquely well suited dispute resolution mechanism for the space community.

The Space Arbitration Association has therefore the objective of creating room for exchange between the international arbitration and space communities. It will create a registry of articles and public documents on space-related arbitration proceedings, and also organize events on topics related to space arbitration.
