Our People

In recognition of the tremendous importance and impact of the McGill Manual on International Law Applicable to Military Uses of Outer Space (MILAMOS), a select Group of Experts hailing from all corners of the world have committed themselves to the MILAMOS Process.

These Experts represent some of the most highly recognised professionals, academics and publicists in the domains of general international law, international space law, international humanitarian law, the law on the use of force, as well as advanced technical aspects of space utilisation. Though affiliated with governmental and intergovernmental institutions, academic and research institutitions as well as the armed forces, to ensure the neutrality  of the consensus-building process and independence of the resultant Manual, all Experts will be participating in their individual capacity and will not be representing the State or organisation they are identified with.

This impressive list of persons involved in the Project, each of whom enjoy a distinguished career and carry a wealth of experiences, is testament to the fair, inclusive, and interdisciplinary and truly global nature of MILAMOS Process and the McGill Manual.
