Blog post with audio player, show notes, and transcript: https://www.preposterousuniverse.com/podcast/2022/10/03/213-timiebi-aganaba-on-law-and-governance-in-space/
With communication satellites, weather satellites, GPS, and much more, what happens in space is already important to our lives here on Earth. And the importance of space is only going to grow as we increase the presence of humans, whether in Earth orbit or beyond. So the questions of what laws govern activity in space, and how nations and institutions should practice good governance more generally, are becoming increasingly urgent. Timiebi Aganaba is an academic and space lawyer who has experience experience in a wide variety of context and countries. We talk about the current status of space law and how to guarantee good governance going forward.
Timiebi Aganaba received Ph.D. and LL.M. degrees from the Institute of Air and Space Law at McGill University. She is currently an assistant professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society at Arizona State University, with a courtesy appointment at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law. She is also an affiliate faculty with the Interplanetary Initiative and a senior global futures scientist with the Global Futures Lab at ASU.

Here is my highlights reel. #TimiebiAganabaLLC
The Borders of Astrobiology: Inclusion, fairness and engagement
The event considered issues of ethical engagement and knowledge production in astrobiology, addressing questions such as: how can we facilitate increased engagement in space activities, especially in developing and emerging countries and among marginalized groups, how can we explore and challenge structural inequalities and power hierarchies to achieve fair co-production and not least, what ‘fairness’ and ‘inclusion’ mean in this context.

The Letter or the Spirit of the Law? Evolving Governance in Space 5.0 with Prof. Timiebi Aganaba
In these early years of the 21st century, space science, technology, law and policy are a tangled knot of commercial, national, and international interests leading to a new focus on space governance. Framed by early developments like the Outer Space Treaty of 1967 and the context of the Cold War, the current landscape of Space 4.0 and the emerging Space 5.0 is a flux of political economic forces coupled with the need to cater to the individual. As billionaires launch themselves into orbit, nation-states large and small are in the position of weighing in on one side or another of unresolved interpretive debates while international bodies like the United Nations continue to be less effective with respect to the progressive development of law.
How can a globally networked society make its way into a peaceful future? Dr. Timiebi Aganaba will examine and address this question through the lens of global space governance and discuss the role of legal interpretation in creating and addressing issues of space policy.
Dr. Timiebi Aganaba is an assistant professor of Space and Society, in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society with a courtesy appointment at the Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law, at Arizona State University. She serves on the Advisory Board for the Space Generation Advisory Council supporting the UN Programme on Space Applications and on the Science Advisory Boards of World View Enterprises and the SETI Institute.
She has previously served as the Executive Director of the World Space Week Association, as a space industry consultant, taught space policy, law and economics department at the International Space University, and represented Nigeria at the UN as a Next Generation Aviation Professional at the International Civil Aviation Organization Model Council in Montreal (2014) and at the Legal subcommittee of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space in Vienna (2011).
What Governance Structure Best Suits an InterPlanetary Humanity? #018 with Timiebi Aganaba
As we stand on the precipice of becoming an InterPlanetary Species, we need to think carefully about what an InterPlanetary governance structure looks like, and how it ensures that space is explored and protected for the benefit of all humanity. Dr. Timiebi Aganaba is the perfect person to walk us through all that's at stake in such a huge consideration.
Timiebi Aganaba is an Assistant Professor at Arizona State’s school for the Future of Innovation in Society, with a courtesy appointment at the Sandra Day O’ Connor school of Law. She has worked at the Nigerian National Space Research and Development Agency. She has also worked as a space industry consultant for the Canadian Space agency. She holds a Masters of Science from the International Space University, and a Masters of Law and a PhD from the Institute of Air and Space Law at McGill University, and she was recently appointed to the Science Advisory Board at the SETI Institute. A true "space-governance" repository, coming at this not-so-distant future very thoughtfully and inclusively.
In this episode, we discuss everything from current international law and it’s applications to future space law, space law that already exists, the trade-offs between optimization and speed of implementation, how to ensure diversity and representation of perspectives when creating new international and/or interplanetary law, the intersection of federal space agencies and the private sector, and how much money actually matters in the space game. Then we talk through a powerful piece of extraterrestrial technology that might allow us to address and correct a looming planetary problem.

Timiebi Aganaba 2021 04 14 Space liability
Towards Space Sustainability by Timiebi Aganaba
This talk is about space sustainability and the need to protect the outer space environment for the long term. It attempts to address this by assessing the outer space liability regime, particularly the fundamental flaw that it does not directly account for damage caused to the space environment. Jurisprudential lessons can be learnt from existing environmental liability regimes for hazardous activities on earth, to protect the outer space environment. While it is acknowledged that there are short comings in the environmental liability regimes as they stand, I ask the question, if the inherent weaknesses are remedied could environmental liability be a good tool for deterrence and accountability for damage caused to the space environment by polluters.

MSI Seminar 2021-03-30: Timiebi Aganaba
McGill Space Institute Seminar, 30-March-2021
Speaker: Timiebi Aganaba, School for the Future of Innovation in Society - Arizona State University
Title: The Emerging 5.0 Era: Law, Governance, & Ethics at the Frontier
Abstract: The future I was referring to in my 2019 TEDx talk “The Future of the Space 4.0 era”, has already arrived in the form of Space 5.0.
Being a space advocate in the space 4.0 era has engendered mixed feelings of excitement and worry. Is our space future going to be one marked by promise and progress or more of the same injustices we have seen in the past, as scientists and innovators pay little attention to social concerns? A new breed of advocates are calling for change which marks the Space 5.0 era.
Space 5.0 is characterized by 4 trends which have law, governance and ethics at the center:
1, Resisting the structures of coloniality: This is not just about inclusion and opening the door a little, but shattering the narratives and foundations of space exploration, its why and the place of different stakeholders. Concurrently, as the future is for all, the approach needs to be centered on a thought out cosmopolitanism that recognizes common and differentiated obligations, and benefits for humanity.
2. A move towards Operationalizing Equity: But, how do we think about this practically? We must look at the concept of fairness in international law and bring sociology into law. This calls for a focus on justice in interpretation, which is beyond law.
3. Application of principles of general areas of terrestrial law to the space domain: For example what is the place of Individuals and human rights as we start thinking seriously about space settlement and how do we think of space as an environment that requires sustainable development, requiring the application of environmental law standards?
4. If coalitions will be leading exploration, then what are the applicable principles of polycentric governance that apply? As the US led Artemis Accords may need to be applied alongside a Chinese-Russian led governance system? How do we interact between legal orders? Could there even be a non-aligned movement too made up of non-state actors, focused on organizing and governing themselves through transactions, contract and private law principles?
As we move towards mainstreaming these concerns and sensibilities, it is the time for us all to be inward focused and reflective as Judith Butlers “Taking Account of Oneself” calls for. As we are more aware of ourselves and what drives us, we will be able to open up ourselves to hear the other. This talk will provide food for thought to help us do just that.

Space Law Explained
Since the 1960s, United Nations members have worked together to create a framework of treaties, agreements and accords that set the rules for space exploration. Because space law is made up of several different agreements, it can be difficult to understand exactly how it works. In this video, legal scholar Timiebi Aganaba-Jeanty outlines the evolution of space law from the space race era to current commercial space flight missions. Despite space law progress, commercial resource exploitation is still vaguely defined. The private sector is on the verge of making mining activities a reality which could spark the creation of an entirely new economic sector. The international community must come together to create improved legal frameworks and ensure that space resource exploitation benefits all of humankind equitably.
