War and Peace in Outer Space Summary

War and Peace in Outer Space: Law, Policy, and Ethics by Cassandra Steer (Lecturer, Lecturer, Australian National University College of Law)

This book delves into legal and ethical concerns over the increased weaponization of outer space and the potential for space-based conflict in the very near future. Unique to this collection is the emphasis on questions of ethical conduct and legal standards applicable to military uses of outer space. No other existing publication takes this perspective, nor includes such a range of interdisciplinary expertise. The essays included in this volume explore the moral and legal issues of space security in four sections. Part I provides a general legal framework for the law of war and peace in space. Part II tackles ethical issues. Part III looks at specific threats to space security. Part IV proposes possible legal and diplomatic solutions. With an expert author team from North American and Europe, the volume brings together academics, military lawyers, military space operators, aerospace industry representatives, diplomats, and national security and policy experts. The experience of this team provides a collection unmatched in any academic publication broaching even some of these issues and will be required reading for anyone interested in war and peace in outer space.

War and Peace in Outer Space Reviews

This volume is valuable for a variety of reasons: the urgency of the topic and the paucity of great scholarship surrounding it, and the variety of views andperspectives that offer both critical insights as well as actionable recommendations. * Christopher D. Johnson, Space Law Advisor *
This impressive and highly readable book pulls together essays from a cavalcade of creative thinkers to take on not only space security and military prowess, but also the ethical, legal and illegal issues regarding the weaponization of outer space. * Leonard Davis, Inside Outer Space *
