The COPUOS, at its fifty-ninth session, endorsed the recommendation made by the Legal Subcommittee at its fifty-fifth session that a high-level panel discussion should be held on the afternoon of the opening day of the sixtieth session of the Committee to provide legal, policy and scientific and technical perspectives related to the Outer Space Treaty, to be organized by the Office for Outer Space Affairs (A/71/20, para. 319). The panel discussion will be held in the afternoon of the opening day of the session
The panel will be held in the afternoon of the opening day of COPUOS, Wednesday 7 June 2017 at 15.00-18.00 on the theme “The Outer Space Treaty: 50 years — looking ahead towards 2030”.
COPUOS decided to invite the Heads of the respective entities since many years organizing the Subcommittee symposiums to form part of the panel, namely COSPAR, IAF, IISL, ECSL and UNOOSA. The panel would thus mark a collective effort under this unique partnership to serve our intergovernmental bodies with topics and discussions surrounding essential matters under consideration.
