6th Edition of GNLU Air and Space Law Academy [20 -26 September, 2021]

About the Academy
States are exhibiting an increasingly keen interest in augmenting investments in developing their capabilities and competencies in the realm of both air and space activities. Non-State actors, including private investors, are no exceptions to this emerging trend. It is becoming evident that a nation’s supremacy in air and space will define international relations in the years to come. Recognizing this potential, the Centre organizes GNLU Air and Space Law Academy (GASLA) as a platform for engaging in discourse on contemporary legal issues in the field of air and space.
The first edition of GASLA was successfully conducted by GNLU in 2016, in collaboration with the Institute of Air and Space Law, University of Cologne and the Forum for Integrated National Security (FINS). Encouraged by the overwhelming success of the five editions, the V. S. Mani Centre for Air and Space Law (VSMCASL) is pleased to present before you the 6th Edition of GNLU Air and Space Law Academy (GASLA) 2021. The 6th Edition is scheduled to be organised virtually from 20 – 26 September 2021.
