Call for participation in the IISL Working Group on the Future of the Moon Agreement

Dear Members, Prospective Members, and Friends of the International Institute for Space Law (IISL),

We are pleased to invite you to participate in the newly established Working Group on the Future of the Moon Agreement.

Working Group Overview

In light of the ongoing efforts to set up a framework to govern the utilization of space resources as well as the plans to return to Moon, the Working Group on the Future of the Moon Agreement, under the auspices of the International Institute of Space Law (IISL), aims at exploring the contribution that the Agreement can give to this process. Despite the limited number of States Parties to it, the Moon Agreement remains the only existing international treaty specifically designed to regulate human activities on a celestial body, hence it seems worth to reflect upon the lessons to be learned from its drafting history and provisions and its relevance in today’s space environment.

You can find more details on the Working Group IISL page and the Call for participation below.
