The following report presents the results of the study on Stakeholder Interests in Lunar Governance conducted by Cenan Al-Ekabi (Research Fellow, Open Lunar Foundation) and Chelsea Robinson (Chief Operating Officer, Open Lunar Foundation). The study adapts a methodology developed in a 2012 pilot study performed by the European Space Policy Institute (ESPI) for the European Space Agency (ESA) to aid in future programmatic decision-making, and reached out to high-level stakeholders to provide input on different lunar governance scenarios. The aim of the study was to identify the prioritization and intensity of the foundational interests of respective stakeholder groups, and to assess how the different governance scenarios fulfilled each respective interest, for the purpose of 1) identifying areas where stakeholder interests align; 2) optimizing collaboration among stakeholders to make development more efficient; and 3) to measure the preference and intensity of stakeholder interests for better policy making.
