Moon Dialogs Research Salon #16: Lunar Governance - Lessons from Earth

When: Monday, November 22, 2021

Time: 11:00 AM ET

Where: Virtual

Outer Space, just as much as terrestrial resources, needs to be used sustainably and equitably. This year, the Moon Dialogs hosted a research group to leverage the vast literature on good governance practices to inform the design of effective and sustainable resource management for the Moon. Investigating lunar resources as social-ecological systems helped shine a light on potential governance and management regimes.

In a collaboration between Moon Dialogs and the Space Generation Advisory Council (SGAC), researchers from these organizations systematically analyzed and synthesized findings from terrestrial social-ecological systems.

In this Moon Dialogs Salon, Lukas Kuhn and Jessy Kate Schingler presented insights from this work and discuss applicability and implications with space policy expert Brian Weeden from the Secure World Foundation.
