Abstract: This contribution addresses the emergence and challenges of European space
governance, of which the framework and ambitions have been laid out in the recently
adopted European Space Policy (ESP). The authors explore the legal and
institutional challenges linked to the further evolution of European space
governance. In doing so, they first provide an overview of the challenges arising out
of the conceptual interactions between European governance and space
governance. Next, the authors discuss the past and present legal set-up of Europe in
space. Finally, they consider the effect of the ESP on future governance, including
the possible implications of the Lisbon Treaty. The contribution concludes that the
future of space governance in Europe requires a novel legal solution which will have
substantial repercussions on how decision-makers perceive the Union and its
strategic role.
