Das ILWR wird in das Institut für Luftrecht, Weltraumrecht und Cyberrecht umbenannt

Since the celebration of its 90th anniversary in 2015, the Institute of Air and Space Law has expanded its research to questions of Cyber law – the legal regulation of the uses of cyber infrastructure and cybersecurity. The relevance of these topics is already apparent as cyberspace, as a virtual space different from the international commons, poses new challenges to the relevant law. 

The Institute has been conducting legal research on the relation between international law and cyber law as well as on cybersecurity in aviation and space activities. As a consequence, the Faculty of Law at the University of Cologne has unanimously voted in favour of a renaming of the Institute into

The Institute for Air Law, Space Law and Cyber Law.

Inter alia, in 2017 the Institute’s Director headed a working group on cyber law of the International Institute of Space Law (IISL) and in 2015 the Institute’s team provided expertise for the Tallinn Manual 2.0 on the International Law Applicable to Cyber Operations.
