In an earlier post here on International Law Observer, I drew our readers attention to the so-called “Principles on Responsible Sovereign Borrowing and Lending” (read more here). These Principles were drafted by an Expert Group and aimed to guide responsible sovereign lending and borrowing. In this context, UNCTAD, together with the University Autónoma of Madrid through its schools of Law and Economics, is now organizing the Conference “Responsible Sovereign Borrowing and Lending: The Search for Common Principles”. According to the conference website, the event “will open with an “ESIL Lecture” by Prof. Dr. Armin von Bogdandy and be structured in four Panels, each of them specialized in one topic and focusing on the foundations, implications and perspectives of these Principles and the problems they are designed to address. Some concluding remarks by Prof. Robert Howse will close the Conference.” Find out more here.
Thanks to Professor Juan Pablo Bohoslavsky for drawing my attention to this.
