The Asian Institute of Air and Space Law, the Graduate School of Law, Soochow University, Taipei, the International Institute of Air and Space Law, Leiden University, and the Institute of Air and Space Law, McGill University, have instituted international conferences in order to provide a world platform for specialists and scholars.

The Tokyo Conference, upon which this collection of papers is based, was concerned with a wide range of legal and practical questions arising from regulatory developments in international air transportation and in the exploration, exploitation and use of outer space and celestial bodies.

The main topics of deliberation were: megacarriers in the 21st century; the need to revise the Bermuda Capacity Formula and the Chicago Convention; liability and responsibility in international aviation; safety, security and environment; airline industry competition; legal and political aspects of space transportation and manned space flights; the protection of the space environment; and dispute settlement in air and space law. They are all discussed in this volume.
