Settling space disputes

Hot off the space law presses, a hefty SLP summer reading pick, all two pounds, 408 pages of it: Gerardine Meishan Goh has a new book on Dispute Settlement in International Space Law: A Multi-door Courthouse for Outer Space (2007).

So far I like the title; feedback later -- the book only came out in April (and where was my advance copy?)

By way of a preview: Dr. Goh "looks at an international and interdisciplinary approach in dealing with dispute resolution in space activities" and "proposes a workable legal framework for dispute resolution in outer space, together with a mechanism for enforcement and verification." We're going to need it.

And via her publisher, a little background on the author:

GĂ©rardine Meishan Goh, Ph.D. (2007) in International Law, Leiden University, the Netherlands, is research fellow at the Institute of Air and Space Law, University of Cologne, Germany. She manages and is the co-editor of the Cologne Commentary on Space Law (CoCoSL), a project conducted jointly between the Institute and the German Aerospace Center (DLR). GĂ©rardine is also a business development and legal consultant for the satellite-based geo-information services industry.
Dig in. Of course the best way to deal with disputes is to avoid them in the first place. But then, what would the lawyers do?
