This book is, at the heart, a result of a Practitioners’ Forum of the European Centre of Space Law (ECSL), organized in Paris in December 2008. Having been established in the early 90s, ECSL Practitioners’ Fora are organized more or less annually, and have presented unique oneday occasions for academics and practitioners from all corners of the European space endeavor and space industry to discuss topical and important legal issues.
