WSW 2022 - Steven Freeland on Space Law
We are starting 2022 with an interview with Steven Freeland, Emeritus Professor of International Law at Western Sydney University where he was also previously the Dean of the School of Law, and Professorial Fellow at Bond University. He also holds Visiting or Adjunct positions at various other Universities/Institutes in Copenhagen, Vienna, Toulouse, Hong Kong, Montreal, Kuala Lumpur and London. Prior to becoming an academic, Steven had a 20-year career as an international commercial lawyer and investment banker. He is a Member of the Australian Space Agency Advisory Board and has been an advisor to the Australian, New Zealand, Norwegian and several other Governments on issues relating to national space legislative frameworks and policy. He has represented the Australian Government at Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space (UNCOPUOS) meetings and was appointed in June 2021 by UNCOPUOS as Vice-Chair of a 5-year Working Group looking at issues regarding the exploration, exploitation and utilisation of space resources. Steven is also a Director of the International Institute of Space Law. We talk about the role of legislation in the space context and his personal opinions about space and space exploration.

Interview with Siân Cleaver
Siân Cleaver is an Industrial Manager Orion ESM and ESM-2 AIT Scheduler at Airbus Defence and Space.  We talked to Siân about her interest in space and what is it exactly that she is doing at work, the Artemis mission, her jobs, engineering and space, moving countries, what would she take with her to space and when will people go back to the Moon. She told us about dream jobs, career paths and how she got into the job she is doing, STEM and girls, and we discussed how to encourage girls to pursue space careers and generally how to make the world a better place.  Thank you very much Siân Cleaver for generously sharing with the World Space Week Association and we wish you success in everything you do.
