Abstract

Space security is becoming an increasing important and challenging issue for the international space law. This paper discusses how, in lieu of hard international norms found in the form of treaties, custom, and adjudicatory decisions, soft international law norms are being developed. This is attributable to the emerging organization of space activities in which States have asymmetric interest. To cope with this law is evolving through the development of soft norms both through the international incidents methodology and through the development of political agreements.
