ITAR, which controls defense trade, includes the U.S. Munitions List (USML) which specifies categories of defense articles and services covered by the regulations. In 1999, space satellites were added to the USML. In 2002 ITAR was amended to exclude U.S. universities from having to obtain ITAR licenses when performing fundamental research involving foreign countries and/or persons. Despite this provision, there remains considerable uncertainty among university researchers about whether the regulations apply to their research leading to a rather conservative interpretation of the regulations and the imposition of burdens that might not be necessary. To explore this concern, NASA asked the NRC to organize a workshop of all stakeholders on the implications of ITAR for space science. This book presents a summary of the workshop discussions including those on perspectives on recent developments and implementation of ITAR; overarching issues; problems arising from ITAR's implementation; and opportunities for near-term actions and improvements.

The Export Control and Embargo Handbook, Third Edition is a comprehensive examination of export administration regulations. While most currently available titles covering export control and embargo law carry a broader international focus, U.S. regulations are the central topic of this book. The Export Control and Embargo Handbook provides the very latest information on the embargo, transaction, and currency controls administered by the Commerce, State, Energy, and Treasury Departments, as well as the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. This fully updated third edition is useful for individuals involved in issues surrounding both the exporting from the U.S. and re-exporting U.S.-origin goods and technology, as well as for transactions involving embargoed countries and their products. Offering a detailed analysis of licensing requirements and exceptions from a well-known expert in the field, the book also provides convenient access to the relevant excerpts from the Export Administration Regulations (EAR) and the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR). Blending information with practical application, Eric L. Hirschorn's in-depth analysis of the key U.S. export restrictions on 'dual use' goods, software and technology, defense articles, technology and services, and nuclear equipment and technology, along with the rules governing dealings with embargoed countries, make this an invaluable asset for legal practitioners in the export industry. Any lawyer or government official involved in embargo issues can easily access necessary information using the detailed Table of Contents and thorough index. Law students preparing for a career in trade law will also benefit from the book's accessible style.

In contrast to the close cooperation practiced among European states, space relations among Asian states have become increasingly tense. If current trends continue, the Asian civilian space competition could become a military race. To better understand these emerging dynamics, James Clay Moltz conducts the first in-depth policy analysis of Asia's fourteen leading space programs, concentrating especially on developments in China, Japan, India, and South Korea. Moltz isolates the domestic motivations driving Asia's space actors, revisiting critical events such as China's 2007 antisatellite weapons test and manned flights, Japan's successful Kaguya lunar mission and Kibo module for the International Space Station (ISS), India's Chandrayaan lunar mission, and South Korea's astronaut visit to the ISS, along with plans to establish independent space-launch capability. He investigates these nations' divergent space goals and their tendency to focus on national solutions and self-reliance rather than regionwide cooperation and multilateral initiatives. He concludes with recommendations for improved intra-Asian space cooperation and regional conflict prevention. Moltz also considers America's efforts to engage Asia's space programs in joint activities and the prospects for future U.S. space leadership. He extends his analysis to the relationship between space programs and economic development in Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia, North Korea, Pakistan, the Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam, making this a key text for international relations and Asian studies scholars.
