ASLI 105th Annual Meeting: Harmony & Dissonance in International Law
European sovereign debt poses significant legal challenges that differ from the market crises of the recent past. The panel will examine the respective roles of the G-20, G-7, components of the European Union, European Central Bank, IMF, and private investors of all types in the management of the European sovereign debt situation. It will also examine the gaps in the international legal structures surrounding
sovereign debt, and what sovereignty -- a cornerstone principle of international law -- means in the context of sovereign debt crisis management.
