Submitted Abstract

The Lecture Series was structured around six lectures delivered by highly renowned experts in the field. The six lectures were logically sequenced to ensure continuity and progression. The opening two lectures explored the legal and economic foundations of sovereign debt and default. They were followed by two lectures focusing on the practical challenges posed by sovereign debt crises and the limitations of the existing legal framework for sovereign debt restructuring. The final two lectures reflected on the proposed solutions to the sovereign debt restructuring problem and discussed the range of proposals for reform of sovereign debt restructuring falling under the contractual and statutory approaches.- Lecture 1: “The Law and Economics of Sovereign Debt and Default”Lecturer: Prof. Ugo Panizza (Graduate Institute Geneva)Discussant: Prof. Pierre-Henri Conac (University of Luxembourg)- Lecture 2: “Sovereign Debt Restructuring and International Law”Lecturer: Prof. Robert Howse (New York University)Discussant: Dr. Matthias Goldmann (Goethe University Frankfurt and MPI for Comparative Public Law and International Law)- Lecture 3: “Implications of Recent Sovereign Debt Litigation: Lessons from Argentina and Greece)Lecturer: Prof. Mathias Audit (University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne)Discussant: Prof. Régis Bismuth (Sciences Po Paris)- Lecture 4: “Investment Arbitration as a Means of Resolving Sovereign Debt Dispute”Lecturer: Dr. Michael Waibel (University of Cambridge)Discussant: Prof. Rodrigo Olivares-Caminal (Queen Mary University of London)- Lecture 5: “Proposals for Reform of Sovereign Debt Restructuring: The Contractual Approach”Lecturer: Mr. Philip R.
