17 March 2017. On Friday 17 March 2017, ESPI’s Dr. Annette Froehlich and David Nader hosted representatives from Embassies and Permanent Missions from Latin American Countries based in Vienna to discuss the delimitation of outer space.

This issue has been debated at UNCOPUOS (Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space) for over half a century. Following a brief presentation to review the topic and highlight various approaches to the matter, discussion ensued and various open questions were addressed. GRULAC (Group of Latin America and Caribbean Countries) is one of the United Nations Regional Group gathering the Latin American and Caribbean states.
