The University of Luxembourg in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for International, European and Regulatory Procedural Law and the SES Chair in Satellite Communication and Media Law present the 2 nd Luxembourg Workshop on Satellite Communication entitled "Satellite Communication and Dispute Resolution".

What happens if two States dispute about the right to use specific radio frequencies? What happens if one of them starts jamming the TV transmission of the other? What happens if a State does not implement timely and properly a European Union Directive dealing with frequency management? Which rules will be applied if a satellite operator has a dispute with another one about the use of a frequency band?

Satellite communication is a great market with numerous and diverse actors involved: States, international organisations, private firms and individuals. This diversity is reflected in the legal rules which encompass international treaties, European or other regional legislation, national legal rules, contracts or agreements.

The University of Luxembourg in collaboration with the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg for International, European and Regulatory Procedural Law and the SES Chair in Satellite Communication and Media Law present the 2 nd Luxembourg Workshop on Satellite Communication entitled "Satellite Communication and Dispute Resolution".
