Space Settlement Governance and Property Rights

Copyright © 2016 by Thomas Gangale
@ThomasGangale

Statement of the Party of the First Part

In the process of doing some self-education, I have been listening to the Space Show archives when I came across the show where you were interviewed.  You gave this e-mail address and requested listeners to contact you if they wished.

As we get closer to returning crew to the moon, I think that there could be a long-term problem if the groundwork isn't set properly from the start.

It could be that functional ownership would work well for a long time.  But eventually there will be enough people living on the moon in interdependent relationships that they will want to become politically independent.  But if there were not clear rules set down from the beginning then there could be competing territorial claims based upon past historical use.  We see this problem all the time such as the dispute in the South China Sea.  It seems very difficult for neighboring countries to resolve border disputes between themselves even over a period of decades.  These disagreements can results in conflict and bloodshed.

So here is what I would propose be done before people start investing in and establishing claims on the moon.  I would like to propose that the borders for future lunar countries be established before anybody arrives.  In that way, anybody who goes to the moon and anybody who spends money developing resources there will have no excuse. They knew what they were investing their resources into and so they don't have any place to complain when that section of territory becomes independent.

Like the Northwest Ordinance, we should set a well-defined population level at which people living in the territory would be free to vote their own form of government however they wish.  However, any assets that they nationalize will have to be compensated at fair market value.

With this approach, everybody going to the moon will understand that they will have to make their own best guess as to the future outcome. If they guessed incorrectly then they may end up living within a country that they don't like.  However, they still can't complain because all they would have to do is look around at their neighbors and guess as to what form of government their neighbors will vote for.

The advantage of this approach, is that people desiring a similar type of future government can tend to congregate with each other and would be motivated to develop their own country.  A libertarian government is one obvious example.  But there would be others.  Certain (polar) countries would have better resources than others and so this framework could accelerate the development of those countries.

Now, I recognize that any treaty laying the boundaries of future lunar countries is so far in the future that it may be difficult to establish a treaty or such which would define those countries. However, I'm wondering if this process and those boundaries could be formally or informally set so that as the problem grows, people will keep referring back to the proposal made from the very beginning that, if it had been adopted then, would prevents the problem.  So, it might develop a retrospective authority.

I'm no lawyer and I understand that this idea is probably a bit far out there, but I wanted to run it past you to get your thoughts.


Statement of the Party of the Second Part

I believe that nearly all space law scholars agree that the law needs to be developed further, and that is what we try to do. If there were no need to develop the law further, there would not be much to space law beyond contracts and liability, and I would be looking for a more interesting field of intellectual endeavor.
Pursuant to Article II of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty, claims are prohibited. The purpose of this principle is to prevent the types of conflict you describe. What is permissible in international law is to reduce natural resources to possession by the act of removing those resources from their place. Thus, the U.S. Commercial Space Launch Competitiveness Act of 2015 is consistent with U.S. international obligations. Another principle of international law, found in Article IX, is that "States Parties shall conduct all their activities in outer space, including the Moon and other celestial bodies, with due regard to the corresponding interests of all other States Parties to the Treaty." The same article also addresses a duty not to cause "potentially harmful interference" to the activities of another State Party. From this, some believe that there is in principle a limited zone of exclusive control during a space activity which could (and should) evolve in international law. Specifics that need to be worked out include the territorial extent of the zone, which may vary with the type of activity, and the duration of the zone, which would expire some time after the activity ceased.

Since claims are prohibited, one owns only what one brings, builds, or the natural resources one removes. Investment should be attracted on the basis of an entity's technical ability to obtain the resources, not on claims. Since there is a duty to conduct activities in outer space with due regard to the corresponding interests of others, and not to cause potentially harmful interference, what is the point of a claim? What matters is getting to a place first.

The problem with a claim is determining what is the registering authority. A U.S. entity, a Chinese entity, and a Russian entity might well register competing claims with their respective governments, setting up a scenario for conflict. An international authority might be established, but competing geopolitical interests would likely drive its internal processes... it might deny a claim simply because "too many" U.S. entities already had established claims and "not enough" Russian entities had established claims.

On what basis would the Moon be divided? Combining the "common heritage of mankind" doctrine with the basic principle of international law that all states are equal leads to a thesis that each nation on Earth has an equal, undivided interest in the Moon and other celestial bodies. A lot of people in developed countries have philosophical heartburn with that idea. The problem with dividing the Moon into national territories (future countries) is that it would force this issue. The only way that a state could be assured of having an equal share of benefit from the Moon, were it to be divided, would be to own and to have sovereignty over an equal division, whereas it is exceedingly unlikely that all states would agree to "quit-claim" their interests in the Moon. If an international authority were to divide the Moon, it would be legally obligated to do to on the basis of equality. Well, what is equal on a heterogeneous body such as the Moon? It is likely that each territory would need to have not only the same geographic area, but the same proportions of maria, uplands, near side, far side, polar ice, et cetera. That would be 193 equal slices of the Moon, possibly more if the Holy See and the Palestinian Authority were to be included, and it likely would tax the talents of an Elbridge Gerry to draw that many contiguous territories containing all of the necessary proportionalities.

In any case, the Kingdom of Tonga (where I currently reside), a nation of 100,000 people, would be entitled to as much of the Moon as the U.S. This leads to the next problem. So the King of Tonga now owns a slice of the Moon. Oh, very nice, except that he hasn't the means to use that claim. Of course, Tonga could lease sections of its claim to other entities, just as Tonga leased its licensed positions in geostationary orbit to foreign interests. This is an example of rent-seeking, a term in economics and in public-choice theory, which involves seeking to increase one's share of existing wealth without creating new wealth. Well, we want to create new wealth, and to my knowledge, no one has come up with a more efficient economic model for doing that than "first in time, first in right." I don't see a logical tie between creating the boundaries of territories and encouraging investment. What matters to investors is certainty in the rule of law that ensures property rights.

Why should we divide the Moon so as to provide the basis for future nation-states? Nation-states formed in 17th century Central Europe in response the security competition occasioned by the decline of the Holy Roman Empire; in creating new nation-states from artificial boundaries in the 19th and 20th centuries, the former colonial powers of Europe did a damned good job of perpetuating security competition all over the Earth. Why would we want to repeat that mistake on the Moon?

I hope that someday there will be populations in outer space that are desirous, deserving, and capable of political independence. However, I don't see how a Russian sector or a Chinese sector on the Moon would be a step toward that goal. When was the last time that Russia or China granted independence to anyone? Ask the Chechens or the Uyghurs how well that is working out for them.

Scholars have been writing on the sociology and governance of space settlements at least since the 1970s, so there is quite a body of literature. I am not that familiar with it yet, but I plan to begin familiarizing myself next year, as it is a subject that interests me, but for now there are more immediate legal problems that I am working on. In my study of space law, I find examples of our doing too little too late, and there have been times when we have tried to do too much too soon. As usual, wisdom lies in being able to see the middle way. We can offer the future the benefit of our best present thinking, but we must not remove from the future options which may contain little potential for evil. As in medicine, first we must do no harm.

A Fridge Too Far

Copyright © 2016 by Thomas Gangale
@ThomasGangale

I wouldn't have believed that I would miss having a refrigerator in the bedroom as much as I do. I remember how I felt when we first go it: cool, it's like living in a hotel room... now all we need is room service. It broke down over the weekend. I guess it wouldn't be as big of an adjustment if I hadn't let Jadzia Tongilava and Doobie Mapapalangi drag me on a chase after pigs through terrain recently submerged due to a tropical cyclone. Their pulling me along like that made every step feel like going down a steep grade, which is hell on the knees for anyone with anterior cruciate laxity. I paid for indulging my "fight girls" that night. Just walking around the house was an ordeal. So, having to walk from the bedroom to the main refrigerator in the kitchen for juice, ice cubes, et cetera very much felt like a fridge too far.
