This volume of the JOURNAL OF SPACE LAW contains most of the papers presented at the Earth Observation, Environment, Space, and Remote Sensing Law in the Pacific Rim: Meeting and Live Blogcast (Meeting) hosted by the National Center for Remote Sensing, Air, and Space Law at the University of Mississippi School of Law (Center) and held in Hawaii, U.S., on June 16 – 18, 2010.
The purpose of the Meeting was to build upon the success of the first Pacific Rim National Space Law Summit (Summit) hosted by the Center in 2009. The 2009 meeting focused on the national space laws of Pacific Rim nations. The 2010 meeting addressed the law of Earth Observation, the environment and related topics of various Pacific Rim nations. Like the first event, this meeting also provided a forum for an in-depth experience in which the participants had the opportunity to learn from one another and to discuss, in detail, remote sensing and related law and their developing features in the Pacific Rim. As with the original Summit experts from Australia, China, Hong Kong, (special administrative region of China), Japan, Korea (South), the United States of America and, the United Nations participated. New to this year’s gathering were scholars from the Group on Earth Observations, Colombia, and Mexico. The private bar was represented as well this year with practitioners from the Hawaiian, U.S. and Sydney, Australia bar. Also new this year was an interdisciplinary paper addressing both science and law.
