Two presenters at the IAC 2019, enrolled at McGill University, are currently working on the use of arbitration to resolve space related disputes. They will present a paper on this topic at the IAC and have prepared an anonymous survey to industry colleagues who are lawyers for space companies. By filling in the survey, you could assist the research – your help is much appreciated!

The Survey

We are conducting this survey in order to better understand the viability of arbitration in resolving space-related disputes, including current use and industry preferences for future development. Suggested survey participants are legal counsels and advisors for companies that provide space-related products and/or services.

If appropriate, we would be grateful if you could respond to the survey at the following LINK or QR code below.  The survey comprises 20 questions and should take 10-15 minutes to complete.  The questions do not include identifying information and your response is completely anonymous.  Please feel free to forward this survey to other potential respondents.

Your participation in the survey will help obtain, for the first time, empirical data that may be used by scholars, policymakers and practitioners.

The results of the survey will be presented at the 2019 IAC conference in Washington next month (abstract here, session details here) and submitted thereafter for publication.

Thank you for taking the time to consider our request.
