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.

  • Malinowska, K., Space Insurance: International Legal Aspects, Alphen aan den Rijn, Kluwer Law International, 2017.

    Malinowska, K., Space Insurance: International Legal Aspects, Alphen aan den Rijn, Kluwer Law International, 2017.

    This book focuses on the legal aspects of space insurance, in the contractual context, analysing the theory of space risk insurance, as well as the insurance terms used in the market. Insurance related to outer space activities, has been around since the 1960s, but has become vastly more significant with the increased commercial use of satellites. In light of this increasing significance, this book offers the first in-depth coverage, both practical and theoretical, of space insurance from an international law perspective. The author emphasises the need to understand the various insurance risks facing particular types of commercial space activities, including pre-launch, launch, satellite operation and communications, satellite navigation, satellite remote sensing and space station operation.

    Jakhu, R.S. and Dempsey, P.S. (eds.), Routledge Handbook of Space Law, London, Routledge, 2017.

    The Routledge Handbook of Space Law summarises the existing state of knowledge on a comprehensive range of topics and aspires to set the future international research agenda by indicating gaps and inconsistencies in the existing law and highlighting emerging legal issues. Unlike other books on the subject, it addresses major international and national legal aspects of particular space activities and issues, rather than providing commentary on or explanations about a particular Space Law treaty or national regulation. Drawing together contributions from leading academic scholars and practicing lawyers from around the world, the volume is divided into five key parts:

    • Part I: General Principles of International Space Law

    • Part II: International Law of Space Applications

    • Part III: National Regulation of Space Activities

    • Part IV: National Regulation of Navigational Satellite Systems

    • Part V: Commercial Aspects of Space Law

  • Milde, M., International Air Law and ICAO, The Hague, Eleven international publishing, 2016.

    Milde, M., International Air Law and ICAO, The Hague, Eleven international publishing, 2016.

    This is the third edition of the acclaimed International Air Law and ICAO, first published in 2008. The book has been fully updated to take the latest developments into account. Specialized legal literature dealing with different aspects of international air law is rare, the developments often overtake the existing writings and there is a continuous need not only for updating but also for future-oriented thinking. There is a practical need for a compact but exhaustive and easily comprehensible textbook or reference book that deals with the most general aspects of international air law, as well as with the constitutional issues and law-making functions of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). This book fills this gap as it is a general treatise of the law of international civil aviation aimed at the needs of university students and educators, government authorities, airlines, practicing lawyers, journalists, international organizations and the general public.

    Fitzgerald, P.P., A Level Playing Field for "Open Skies": the Need for Consistent Aviation Regulaton, The Hague, Eleven International Publishing, 2016.

    This book examines the events that have reshaped the international aviation industry between 1992 and 2012. It critically analyzes the major developments and the regulatory responses and highlights some of the incompatible and disjointed regulations that are ineffect at either end of international routes. The author proposes that Australia, Canada, the European Union (EU), New Zealand and the United States (US) form an international organization, to be known as the Open Skies International Aviation Block (OSIAB). The author further argues that such a forum is necessary to ensure that regulations in different countries are aligned so that competitive distortions potentially caused by regulatory disharmony are minimized, thus allowing the international airline industry to compete on the level international playing field. This book is aimed at scholars and practitioners in the field of (international) aviation regulation.

  • Dunk, F. von der (ed.), with Fabio Tronchetti, Handbook of Space Law, Cheltenham, UK ; Northampton, MA, USA, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2015.

    Dunk, F. von der (ed.), with Fabio Tronchetti, Handbook of Space Law, Cheltenham, UK ; Northampton, MA, USA, Edward Elgar Publishing, 2015.

    The book focuses on international space law in the broadest sense of the word, not only including the UN-based space treaties and international customary (space) law, but also the many specialized regimes such as those applicable to the international satellite organizations, the International Space Station, the international trade and the security-sensitive aspects of space technology exports, the financing of space ventures and environmental concerns. The novelty of this holistic approach to space law notably includes the profound and ever-increasing commercialization of space activities and the attendant involvement of the private sector in such activities. This authoritative book thus presents a unique standard work of reference for anyone interested in studying or researching the legal and regulatory aspects of space activities and their major applications in depth.

  • De Man, Ph., Exclusive Use in an Inclusive Environment: The Meaning of the Non-Appropriation Principle for Space Resource Exploitation, Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016.

    De Man, Ph., Exclusive Use in an Inclusive Environment: The Meaning of the Non-Appropriation Principle for Space Resource Exploitation, Cham, Springer International Publishing, 2016.

    This book aims to find a workable interpretation of the non-appropriation principle that is compatible with both the existing international space law framework and the move of the private space industry towards the mining of asteroids and other celestial bodies. It does so by analysing the rules on the use of orbits as limited natural resources as a concrete indication of how space resources can be exploited by one user while respecting the non-appropriation principle and the interests of other users in space. This analysis is complemented by a thorough review of the meaning of property rights in the context of the existing international space law regime. This allows the author to distinguish between the lawful exploitation and unlawful appropriation of resources in a manner that could pave the way for a workable asteroid mining regime that takes into account the needs of individual companies and the international community. Exclusive use in an inclusive environment frames the legal regime of the exploitation of natural resources in outer space as the most pressing example to date of the tension that arises between the rights of a single spacefaring actor and the interests of the broader international community.

  • Marboe, I. (ed.), Small Satellites: Regulatory Challenges and Chances, Leiden, Brill Nijhoff, 2016.

    Marboe, I. (ed.), Small Satellites: Regulatory Challenges and Chances, Leiden, Brill Nijhoff, 2016.

    Small Satellites – Regulatory Challenges and Chances edited by Irmgard Marboe addresses the booming phenomenon of small satellites. The rapid innovation of technology has made it possible to develop, launch and operate small satellites at rather low costs. Universities, start-ups and also governments see the chance to access outer space more easily and inexpensively. Yet, the importance to comply with existing rules and regulations that are in place to ensure that outer space is used and explored in a safe and responsible manner is sometimes overlooked. The book addresses this challenge and shows how it can be met.

  • Ahmad, T., Climate Change Governance in International Civil Aviation: toward regulating Emissions relevant to Climate Change and Global Warming, The Hague, Eleven International Publishing, 2016.

    Ahmad, T., Climate Change Governance in International Civil Aviation: toward regulating Emissions relevant to Climate Change and Global Warming, The Hague, Eleven International Publishing, 2016.

    Successful climate change governance in international civil aviation has yet to be achieved. In this book the author argues that, to successfully govern emissions from international civil aviation of relevance to climate change and global warming, binding legal measures, whether de facto or de jure, and a mandatory but temporary global market-based measure or unilateral market-based measures of the same model adopted by economically powerful States for international civil aviation are immediately required. This book demonstrates how de jure soft law instruments, e.g., Annexes to the Chicago Convention, international environmental law principles, a new understanding and way of exercising the doctrine of State sovereignty, and both multilateral and unilateral economic instruments can be utilized to reduce aviation’s environmental impacts.

  • Bobek, M. and J. Prassl (eds.), Air Passenger Rights: Ten Years On, Oxford and Portland, Oregon, Hart Publishing, 2016.

    Regulation 261/2004 on Air Passengers’ Rights has been amongst the most high-profile pieces of EU secondary legislation of the past years, generating controversial CJEU judgments, from ex parte IATA to Sturgeon. The Regulation has led to equally challenging decisions across the Member States, with domestic courts holding that a Regulation could not be relied upon by an individual claimant or even threatening outright to refuse an application of its provisions. The economic stakes are significant for passengers and airlines alike, and despite the European Commission’s recent publication of reform proposals controversies appear far from settled. At the same time the Regulation should, according to the Treaty, have the same direct and general application in all the Member States of the Union. How, then, can this diversity be explained? What implications do they have for the EU’s regulatory strategy at large? This book brings together leading experts in the field to present a series of case studies from 10 different Member States as well as the extra-territorial application of Regulation 261 combined with high-level analysis from the perspectives of Aviation law and EU law.

  • Zhao, Y., National Space Law in China: An Overview of the Current Situation and Outlook for the Future, Leiden, Boston, Nijhoff, 2015.

    China has made rapid developments in space technologies and space activities in the last few years, however, it still lags behind in the legal arena. In order to provide guidelines for and promote further development of space activities, China should speed up its national space legislation process. In National Space Law in China, Yun Zhao offers a comprehensive study of national space laws, regulations and policies in China. It contains rich information and materials of China’s space law and practice. As the first English monograph on national legislation on space law in China, this book shall contribute to the understanding of China’s current legal regime for space activities and future national space legislation.

  • 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.
