After the 1979 Moon Agreement, the development of international space law in international society has been in a stagnant mode. With the progress of private space activities since late 20th century, a stable framework for space disputes settlement was considered a vital exigency. Scholars have proposed ways like alternative consultation resolution, space law tribunal, and multipurpose court; but they have brought about no success until now. In the current space law order in the world, political consulting, claims commission in Liability Convention, International Court of Justice and Permanent Court of Arbitration rules, and also some regional institutes are the only existing disputes settlement mechanisms. Concerning privatization and commercialization of space activities begun since 1990s, the issue is what are the barriers confronting to the proceedings and settlements according to the plurality of space actors like space corporations, and how to overcome the problems? This paper tries to treat the problem and deal with the possible solutions.
