Founding Institutions

Centre for Research in Air and Space Law (CRASL)

Established in 1976, the McGill Centre for Research in Air and Space Law is the principal research and educational outreach arm of McGill’s Institute of Air & Space Law. Since its inception, the Centre has published a number of monographic studies, proceedings of symposia, reports and books, held a number of workshops, seminars and conferences in Montreal and various other international venues. The Centre’s annual publication, the Annals of Air and Space, is the world’s only bilingual journal devoted to air and space law and has in the past four decades collected a wealth scholarship on security concerns in outer space authored by eminent publicists and practitioners.

The quality and significance of the Centre’s teaching and research activities has gained international renown and recognition with, among others, the honour of receiving the prestigious Edward Warner Award from the United Nation's International Civil Aviation Organization as well as an endowment of the Erin J. C. Arsenault Trust intended to support research in the pursuit of peace and security in outer space through law, policy and global governance.

Research Unit on Military Law and Ethics (RUMLAE), Adelaide Law School

Adelaide Law School is host to legal experts specialised in digital technology, international law, the law of armed conflict and legal ethics. The ever-changing nature of space applications, military and security operations in outer space, and the very theatre of outer space as a potential theatre of future conflict require the input of these academics and experts in military affairs to complement the strong commitment of Canada’s McGill Centre for Research in Air and Space Law to promoting peace and global space governance.

The Research Unit was established in May 2015 to examine legal and policy issues relevant to military and security matters with a particular focus on ethical aspects relevant to the use of force.  It seeks to take advantage of the scholarship being generated through the existing institutional relationship Adelaide University Law School has with the ANU College of Law and Defence Legal in Canberra.

RUMLAE has undertaken a number of intensive research and teaching activities, including considerable work by the team on the Massive Open Online Course (MOOC), ‘Cyberwar, Surveillance and Security’; the development of a ‘Strategic Space Law’ course with McGill University; and work with the China Maritime Studies Institute of the US Naval War College.
