Against the background of the ongoing debated over
the Draft Building Blocks for the Development of an International Framework on space resource activities (hereinafter referred to as “DBB”) issued by the Hague International Space Resources Governance Working Group,
we have identified following dilemmas:
I. International legal framework vs. domestic legal framework
II. Should the international legal framework address individuals?
III. Access to space resources – jurisdiction over space products vs. internationally recognized resource right ensured by the international framework
IV. Sharing of benefits: International legal framework vs. domestic legal framework
V. Coordination of mining activities: Do we need a special authority?
VI. Monitoring: Global problems require global monitoring
VII. Liability in case of damage resulting from space resources activities
VIII. Settlement of disputes: International adjudication
