This book provides a thorough legal analysis of sovereign indebtedness, examining four typologies of sovereign debt - bilateral debt, multilateral debt, syndicated debt and bonded debt - in relation to three crucial contexts: genesis, restructuring and litigation. Its treatise-style approach makes it possible to capture in a systematic manner a phenomenon characterized by high complexity and unclear boundaries. Though the analysis is mainly conducted on the basis of international law, the breadth of this topical subject has made it necessary to include other sources, such as private international law, domestic law and financial practice; moreover, references are made to international financial relations and international financial history so as to provide a more complete understanding. Although it follows the structure of a continental tractatus, the work strikes a balance between consideration of doctrinal and jurisprudential sources, making it a valuable reference work for scholars and practitioners alike.

Editorial Reviews

"Mauro Megliani's work in Sovereign Debt: Genesis-Restructuring-Litigation is thorough and convincing, while the research involved in this book is impressive. The book is also unique as it offers a comprehensive analysis of the phenomenon of sovereign debt and insolvency, an issue that is treated somewhat sporadically in the literature mainly through articles in legal journals or multi-authored edited volumes. . Without doubt, it deserves a place in the library of practitioners, policymakers and scholars dealing with sovereign debt."
