Supporting Organizations

The International Astronautical Congress is organized annually in partnership with three organizations that support the growth of the global space ecosystem, development of a comprehensive legislative framework applicable in the field of space, and the expansion of the representation of students and young professionals engaged in the space industry and academia.

International Academy of Astronautics

The International Academy of Astronautics (IAA) was founded in 1960 by Theodore von Karman. The Academy is an independent international community of leading experts committed to expanding the frontiers of space, the newest realm of human activity. To foster the development of astronautics, the Academy undertakes a number of activities, including the recognition of outstanding contributors through elections and awards. It also facilitates professional communication, develops and promotes new ideas and initiatives, engages the public, and fosters a sense of community among the members.

The IAA is a unique non-governmental organisation established in 1960 and recognized by the United Nations in 1996. It is an honorary society with an action agenda. With 1200 elected members and corresponding members from 87 nations, it works closely with space agencies, industry, the academic community, and the national science and engineering academies to determine the needs and objectives and to help shape policy and forge cooperation by means of studies, position papers, conferences, and publications.

International Institute of Space Law

Founded in 1960, the International Institute of Space Law (IISL) is an independent non-governmental organisation dedicated to fostering the development of space law. The membership of the Institute is composed of individuals and institutions from more than forty countries elected on the basis of their contributions to the field of space law or other social sciences related to space activities. In addition, prospective membership is open to students and young professionals with a demonstrated interest in space law.

The purposes and objectives of the IISL include the promotion of further development of space law and expansion of the rule of law in the exploration and use of outer space for peaceful purposes, the holding of meetings, colloquia and competitions on juridical and social science aspects of space activities, the preparation or commissioning of studies and reports, the publication of books, proceedings, reports, and position papers, and the cooperation with appropriate international organisations and national institutions in the field of space law.
