Event Detail

Fifth Annual Sovereign Debt Restructuring Conference: Whom to Blame for Sovereign Debt Restructurings — Borrowers, Creditors, International Institutions, or Catastrophes?

Sovereign debt restructurings are recurrent events, with their intensity having increased during the last two decades. The question that arises is whom to hold accountable for these episodes — the borrowing countries, investors, international financial institutions (in particular the IMF), unpredictable catastrophic events, or collectively all these elements? This question becomes even more pressing in view of the dire prospects from the current buildup of massive global sovereign debt levels currently at 300% of global GDP. The conference will shed some light on these questions using the knowledge and insights of a distinguished group of experts from academia, global institutions and institutional investors.

This conference, now in its fifth year, is held in partnership with with Drexel University’s LeBow College of Business. We invite you to save the date to join us virtually on Friday February 25, 2022.

 

Conference Co-Chairs:

  • Michael G. Papaioannou, Ph.D., Expert Advisor, International Monetary Fund
  • George Tsetsekos, Ph.D., GIC Board Member, Francis Professor of Finance and Dean Emeritus at LeBow’s College of Business at Drexel University
