For some time now, I've been following the progress of the Manual on International Law Applicable to Military Uses of Outer Space (aka MILAMOS), which is a project being run out of McGill University in Canada. It does exactly what it says on the tin - It's a project to codify fundamental rules governing military uses of Space, in times of peace, war, and in between. If you were trying to come up with the Eridani Edict *before* any planets got glassed, this is where you'd start.

Related to that, one of its key contributors, Dr Kubo Mačák, has recently published an article on "Jus in bello in Military Space Operations", freely available for download. It's not exactly light reading, but it's not too jargon - heavy, and is accessible to any legal layperson with a grasp of Military Science - Fiction.

The link is here if anyone's interested

Thanks very much! As it happens, I'm on a half-days course with two legal officers; they might be interested in this. And I might just be able to suck them into TRMN. :)

Thanks for the link, Misha.

If you're interested, I believe the American Institute for Aeronautics and Astronautics (AIAA) also has a space law program.

Cheers,

The video's out now and the Honorverse gets a mention toward the end.



For some context if you don't watch SFIA regularly, there's a playlist of related videos here

Thanks for posting this, Ensign. The video was most interesting, although I'm not so sure his analysis is quite correct. He only takes what we know today into account, and he only deals with linear space, which even Einstein and Hawking acknowledged is inconsistent with the math behind known phenomenae.
