For decades, various space applications and technologies have provided humanity with immeasurable scientific, socio-economic, and strategic benefits. To avoid miscalculations and misunderstandings that may lead to conflicts, all States and space stakeholders must have a clear and uniform understanding of their rights and obligations relating to the conduct of space activities, including military space activities. To aid and assist all States and space stakeholders, the McGill Manual of International Law Applicable to Military Uses of Outer Space (McGill Manual) is the world's first manual clarifying the international law applicable to military uses of outer space in times of peace, including challenges to peace. The 52 Rules of the McGill Manual are the result of an internationally-recognised effort involving over 80 legal and technical experts from across the globe. The publication of the McGill Manual represents a major effort in strengthening the international rule-based order for the safe, secure, peaceful, and sustainable use of outer space.
