50th Anniversary of the Outer Space Treaty Luncheon Event

Friday, January 27, 2017

On January 27, 1967, the Outer Space Treaty was opened for signature in Moscow, London, and Washington DC. On the fiftieth anniversary of this occasion, a luncheon symposium was held at Georgetown University to reflect on the development of the Outer Space Treaty, the fundamental role the US government played in its development, as well as rationales behind the treaty and fundamentals of public international law underpinning the document and informing our understanding of it. 

This event was organized by the American Society of International Law (ASIL) with the support of the Secure World Foundation and the Georgetown Space Law Society.

Georgetown University Professors of Law Robert Dalton, David Koplow, and Steve Mirmina discuss the Outer Space Treaty 50 years on.
