IAA Social Science Book Award granted to CoCoSL Volume I
At the International Astronautical Congress 2010 in Prague, the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) granted its Social Science Book Award to the Cologne Commentary on Space Law (CoCoSL) Volume I. The award recognizes excellence in publication made by a member or a corresponding member of the Academy in fields related to social science.
The IAA, founded in 1960, brings together the world’s foremost experts in the disciplines of astronautics on a regular basis to recognize the accomplishments of their peers, to explore and discuss cutting-edge issues in space research and technology, and to provide direction and guidance in the non-military uses of space and the ongoing exploration of the solar system.
The IAA Social Science Book Award acknowledges the excellent work achieved through the cooperation of authors, editors and the advisory board. The prize granted to Volume I strengthens the commitment to continuously work for the success of the following Volumes so that the Cologne Commentary on Space Law can take its place as the standard work for the interpretation of the fundamental norms of space law.
