Jus Ad Astra: A Pioneer Project in Space Law

Launched in 2020 by WiseLaw, Jus Ad Astra is a legal project aimed at developing an authoritative international treatise clarifying the fundamental legal principles and human rights applicable to current and future human activities across outer space. This will be achieved in consultation and cooperation with prominent industry leaders, leading academics, and legal experts across the international space industry.

This treatise will seek to culture, consolidate and promote a common understanding concerning the physiological, technical and legal challenges faced by extended human habitation in space. This will be conducted in consideration of the existing terrestrial international human rights law framework and existing international space law instruments.

Jonathan Lim - Project Co-Lead is an Australian lawyer, geopolitical analyst, and cybersecurity analyst. He holds a Juris Doctor, Master of Legal Practice, Bachelor of Arts, and Graduate Certificate in Cybersecurity from Monash University, the Australian National University, and RMIT University. His specialisation spans cyber warfare, cybersecurity, Chinese foreign policy, Australian foreign policy, and international space law.
