Max Planck Lecture Series on Sovereign Debt: “Implications of Recent Sovereign Debt Litigation: Lessons from Argentina and Greece”

As part of its Lecture Series on Sovereign Debt, the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg is organising a lecture on the topic “Implications of Recent Sovereign Debt Litigation: Lessons from Argentina and Greece” on Thursday, 3 November.

The sovereign debt experiences of Argentina and Greece show the intricacies of the restructuring process. Although both countries had to face similar problems (restructuring an unpayable debt and improving competitiveness to enable growth and job creation), each one had to face peculiar legal issues (for example pari passu clauses and remedies) that show the limitations of the existing restructuring processes. This lecture aims at drawing lessons from the recent sovereign debt litigation involving Argentina and Greece.

The lecture is the third in a series of six Max Planck lectures supported through the FNR’s RESCOM: Scientific Events programme.

Lecturer: Prof. Mathias Audit (University Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne)

Discussant: Prof. Regis Bismuth (University of Poitiers)

Date and time: Thursday, 3 November 2016, 16:00
