The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs

The United Nations Office for Outer Space Affairs (UNOOSA) has been founded as a small unit in 1958 with the aim of peaceful uses of outer space. The office is responsible for the implementation of international space law.

In our committee, our delegates will be able to discuss futuristic issues such as colonization and privatization of space. In a world rapidly evolving and consuming its natural resources; humanity’s next target is up in the skies. Our delegates will be able to set the basis of the future of mankind. But it’ll not be an easy task as they have to work on the legal aspect of these issues. While the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 which has been accepted by 109 countries allows every country to free to use and explore space, it prohibits any country to claim any celestial body.

Agenda Item:  Colonization and Privatization of Space

Under Secretary-General: Berker ALTINTAŞ
