This astute and comprehensive book provides in-depth analysis of the space sector with an ‘insurance as governance’ approach. Chapters highlight and examine the key aspects of this important subject including space tourism, risk mitigation and insurance requirements.

Considering the role of space insurers working across national boundaries, this book addresses the ability of insurers to fill an existing regulatory void and describes the actions they can take to improve their capability to execute that governance function. The author also gives a fresh and contemporary insight into topics such as the influences of international space law, international air law and US domestic space law.

Insightful and discerning, Space Insurance and the Law is ideal for space insurance professionals and those with an interest in space entrepreneurship, international space law and the commercial space industry.

Critical Acclaim
‘Legal certainty is imperative for smooth and conflict-free operations, both political and commercial. The lack or tardiness of government space regulations should be filled by alternative modes of global space governance. One of such means is “insurance as governance” as innovatively conceived and brilliantly explained by Andrea Harrington in her book on Space Insurance and the Law. This book, the first of its kind, is an impressive and pioneer work of practical value and academic knowledge and is indispensable for all in the space industry, governments and academia.’
– Ram Jakhu, McGill University, Canada
