Abstract by B. Goswami: “This chapter aims to explain in simple terms, the meaning of space policy, space law and space security. These terms have been approached from various perspectives namely, economic, political, social, scientific and legal. The aim is to provide a comprehensive text covering all aspects of space policy, law and security, if not exhaustively, but sufficiently to draw a basic outline of the evolved principles and current state of affairs. This involves comments on the current policy takes of states, existing international space law, international bodies and agencies dealing with the subject and identifying the key issues along with the suggestions for current and foreseeable lacunae.”
