Law, Justice and Development week 2016 – Washington DC

Whether public or private, State creditors are now regularly confronted with sovereign insolvency or, more generally, repayment difficulties. This is regardless of the nature of their debt, i.e. bank or bonds indebtedness. Faced with this recurring issue, it is essential to identify new solutions or not-experienced practices, considering in particular that some players, such as investment funds specializing in State distressed debt, are an important source of disturbance of markets. The session will explore specific issues and examples of State insolvency, and how fresh ideas and new tools could effectively resolve them.
