Droit aérien

Introduction

Air Law – Research Guide International Law

Les développements particulièrement rapides de la technologie aéronautique au début du 20e siècle ont rendu nécessaire la création de règles juridiques pour ce nouveau mode de transport, que ce soit pour le temps de paix ou le temps de guerre. La première conférence sur l'élaboration d'un code de droit aérien s'est déroulée à Paris en 1910. (Voir P.Fauchille, Le régime juridique des aérostats (1911). Le droit aérien concerne maintenant de nombreux domaines, tels la responsabilité en matière de transport, la sécurité des passagers, des avions et des bagages. La collection de droit aérien international de la Bibliothèque du Palais de la Paix couvre tous les aspects de ce champ du droit international (public et privé), y compris ceux relatifs à l'histoire et aux sources du droit aérien international, aux organisations internationales concernées OACI, IATA et aux nombreuses conventions internationales (Convention de Chicago de 1944, Convention de Varsovie de 1929, Convention de Montréal de 1999).

Le présent guide de recherche se veut un point de départ pour mener des recherches relatives au droit aérien. Il fournit les textes juridiques de base disponibles à la Bibliothèque du Palais de la Paix, qu'il s'agisse de documents imprimés ou de documents sous format électronique. La section intitulée "Bibliographie sélective" présente une sélection de manuels, d'articles importants, de bibliographies, de publications périodiques, de publications en série et de documents pertinents. Des liens permettent de rejoindre le catalogue PPL. Le code de classification de la bibliothèque''148 Droit aérien, Organisation de l'aviation civile internationale" et le mot-matière (mot-clef) Droit aérien sont des instruments permettant de faire une recherche dans le catalogue. Une attention particulière est prêtée à nos inscriptions aux bases de données, revues électroniques, livres électroniques et autres ressources électroniques. Enfin, le présent guide de recherche contient des liens vers des sites Internet pertinents et d'autres ressources en ligne présentant un intérêt particulier.

  • Froehlich, A., (ed.), A Fresh View on the Outer Space Treaty, Cham, Springer, 2018.

    Froehlich - a fresh view on the outer space treaty

    On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Outer Space Treaty this book gives a first insight into where the next generation considers room for further improvement of the Outer Space Treaty in order to cope with upcoming aspects such as providing solutions for the emerging commercial, economic, environmental and social questions. At the time of the adoption of the Outer Space Treaty in 1967 the purpose of this treaty was to avoid conflicting military situations in space. However, 50 years later the Outer Space Treaty is in demand to meet the ever increasing space activities and the different actors involved such as the rise of the private sector players.

  • De Mestral, A., Fitzgerald, P.P.and Ahmad, M.T. (eds.), Sustainable Development, International Aviation and Treaty Implementation, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2018.

    De Mestral, A., Fitzgerald, P.P.and Ahmad, M.T. (eds.), Sustainable Development, International Aviation and Treaty Implementation, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2018.

    In 1944 the Chicago Convention set out the foundations of public international law regulating international air transport, but until 2016 no international agreement existed to limit its environmental impact. Sustainable Development, International Aviation, and Treaty Implementation explains why the CORSIA scheme adopted by the International Civil Aviation Organization in 2016, should be implemented in 2020 even though the adequacy of this scheme is still open to doubt and criticism. This book seeks to examine the many dimensions of the effort to contain greenhouse gas emissions from aircraft in a manner consonant with the principles of sustainable development, and examines the development of international law and policy in an area that has remained largely outside the general framework of international environmental law. International civil aviation is a significant polluter of the atmosphere, and in this volume, a group of air law and sustainable development law specialists considers how the international community can respond.

  • Stubbe, P., State Accountability for Space Debris: a Legal Study of Responsibility for Polluting the Space Environment and Liability for Damage caused by Space Debris, Leiden, Boston, Brill Nijhoff, 2018.

    Stubbe, P., State Accountability for Space Debris: a legal Study of Responsibility for Polluting the Space Environment and Liability for Damage caused by Space Debris, Leiden, Boston, Brill Nijhoff, 2018.

    In State Accountability for Space Debris Peter Stubbe examines the legal consequences of space debris pollution which, he argues, is a global environmental concern. The study finds that the customary ‘no harm’ rule and Article IX of the Outer Space Treaty obligate States to prevent the generation of debris and that the international community as a whole has a legitimate interest in their compliance. A breach of these obligations entails the responsibility of a State and compensation must be provided for damage caused by space debris. The author treats responsibility and liability separately and thoroughly scrutinizes both legal regimes with the help of common analytical elements. Finally, Peter Stubbe argues that a comprehensive traffic management system is required so as to ensure the safe and sustainable use of outer space.

  • Flight MH17 and Legal Remedies

    On 17 July 2014, Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 crashed in Donetsk Oblast, Eastern Ukraine. All 298 people on board MH17, which was en route from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur, died. It claimed the lives of 193 Dutch nationals, 43 from Malaysia, and 27 from Australia. Other victims came from a variety of countries including Indonesia, the United Kingdom, Belgium, Germany and the Philippines. From the start, both the investigation into the cause of the crash and the criminal investigation into the downing of Flight MH17 were severely challenged due to the ongoing armed conflict in Eastern Ukraine between pro-Russian separatists, supported by the Russian Federation, and the Ukrainian government.

  • Satellite Data in International Law

    The use of data acquired through earth observation satellites has become commonplace. The use of satellite data has even expanded as an extremely useful tool to implement international law since it provides factual, relevant and up-to-date information. Further technological developments will steadily increase the range of data which can be collected through Earth Observation and further enhance its accuracy. Therefore, satellite data can be used to monitor compliance with obligations contained within international agreements or to resolve disputes before an international court.

  • Asteroid(s) coming in at Collision Course

    How to handle an incoming asteroid? What does Don Quijote have to do with it? Movies like “Deep Impact” and “Armageddon” make it seem so easy. But in reality there are many technological, legal and political obstacles to cope with. From 15-19 April, 2013, the International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) will hold its third Planetary Defence Conference “Gathering for Impact!” in Flagstaff, Arizona, USA.

  • FABEC

    A feasibility study on a Central European FAB (FABEC) carried out in 2008 in which it showed that improved air traffic management in the area could handle a 50 per cent increase in air traffic volume by 2018 at the same high level of safety and considerable CO2 emission reductions, with a potential benefit for airspace users of € 7,000 million by 2025, several Central European countries have taken matters in their own hands. In the same year the six States of Belgium, Germany, France, Luxembourg, Switzerland and the Netherlands (FABEC States) signed a Declaration of Intent with Annex to commit themselves to build a functional airspace block. A treaty containing the main institutional framework for the construction and implementation of FABEC was drawn up and scheduled to be in force by 2012. Owing to its size and central position in Europe, the FABEC will form a cornerstone of the SES programme.

  • The Moon Agreement of 1979: What Relevance to Space Activities ?

    Years of negotiations in the United Nations Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space and vigorous drafting and re-drafting of an international treaty to govern the activities of States on the Moon, culminated in an unanimous acceptance of the Moon Agreement (or Moon Treaty) by the UN General Assembly in 1979. The Agreement applies to the Moon and all other celestial bodies within the solar system other than the Earth, including orbits or other trajectories to or around them. It turns over jurisdiction to the international community.
