2 November 2009. The Third Annual Space Law Seminar of the University of Nebraska dealt with approaches to space security in the transatlantic arena. ESPI was invited to contribute the European perspective.
Organised in conjunction with the Strategic Space Symposiums, the Space Law Seminars of the Space and Telecom Law Program of the University of Nebraska College of Law have been become a prelude to this large Symposium, taking place traditionally at Omaha. The Space and Telecom Law Programme of the University of Nebraska with its professors Matthew Schaefer and Frans von der Dunk intends to establish itself as a leader in this field.
Their seminars therefore strive to bring together relevant views on topics high broader interest. This year’s seminar dealt with “Approaches to Space Security in the Transatlantic Arena” (programme here). ESPI’s Director Kai-Uwe Schrogl gave a presentation containing a European perspective (presentation here ) and also intervened in the discussion in this respect.
It is planned to further the cooperation between ESPI and the Space and Telecom Law Program of the University of Nebraska College of Law, which will notably include a joint conference on 6-7 May 2010 at Lincoln, dealing i.a. with Transparency and Confidence Building Measures, by that becoming part of the respective ESPI project in the framework of its Workplan 2010.
