  • Anne-Sophie Martin
Part of the Studies in Space Policy book series (STUDSPACE, volume 17)


This paper deals with the importance of the use of satellite data as evidence before international courts. The paper analyses applicable law and provides an overview of international case law so far. It shows that in the future and for the purposes of Post 2030-Agenda of the United Nations, it can be envisaged that these data will be more and more widespread. Satellite data will be significant not only for the traditional issues such as environmental protection or borders delimitation, but also in other domains, like human rights protection.
