Abstract

Abstract by B. Goswami: “Globalization has proliferated and impacted almost everything we know of today and International Space Law is no different. This brief text elaborates on the concept, trend and effect of globalization on space law. For the purpose of this article, two forms of globalization have be elaborated upon viz. Economic Globalization and Sociological Globalization, while former is the popular perception of globalization involving opening up of markets and free flow of trade and capital, the latter involves socialization and assimilation of community/human values at global level. International Space Law has been influenced by both forms of globalization, the effect of which has resulted into creation of gap between the developed and developing nations, paradigm shift from creation of binding legal obligations to formation of soft law principles and dilution of major international bodies entrusted with promulgation of legal texts to address compelling issues faced by International Space Law.”
