Abstract: Space activity started as a national ambition during the Cold War and has progressively evolved into an international framework in which states can cooperate. Yet, this cooperation contained flaws from earlier on and the current framework dominated by the United States of America (USA) through NASA, bars any attempt of cooperation with China and their national space agency; CNSA. This thesis intends to look at the context in which cooperation emerged in the context of space activity and understands the reasons why this cooperation has been failing. Accounting for these elements, a new cooperative framework will be drafted to overcome the shortcomings mentioned and promote the benefits a USA- China cooperation could bring to the sector of space activity internationally.
