Max Planck Lecture Series on Sovereign Debt: “Proposals for Reform of Sovereign Debt Restructuring: The Statutory Approach”

As part of its Lecture Series on Sovereign Debt, the Max Planck Institute Luxembourg is organising a lecture on the topic ““Proposals for Reform of Sovereign Debt Restructuring: The Statutory Approach”” on Wednesday, 14 December.

Fifteen years after the International Monetary Fund’s famous attempt to implement a multilateral legal framework for sovereign debt restructuring (SDRM), there is a renewed interest in such mechanisms at the international level (see UN General Assembly Resolution 68/304). The proposed legal frameworks are based on the presumption that the decentralized, market-based approach is deficient, hence the need for a more comprehensive reform. This second lecture about the proposals for reform will focus on the soundness and the practicability of statutory approaches to sovereign debt restructuring.

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

Discussant: Prof. Luis M. Hinojosa-Martinez (Granada University)
