Georgetown Law’s Institute of International Economic Law and the Sovereign Debt Forum are delighted to invite you to a virtual panel to mark the release of the International Monetary Fund’s Reviews of the Fund’s Sovereign Arrears Policies and Perimeter on Thursday, May 26, at 9 am EDT. The expert panel will discuss the findings of the IMF policy review against the background of rising public and private debt stocks, and acute sovereign debt vulnerabilities in a growing number of countries around the world. The IMF’s arrears policies have been a critical element in the international debt crisis management toolkit since the 1980s, and have evolved to reflect big changes in global capital flows and crisis dynamics.

This virtual conversation takes place in conjunction with DebtCon5, our flagship Interdisciplinary Sovereign Debt Research and Management Conference, with in-person events hosted by the European University Institute (EUI) May 25 – 27, 2022 in Italy, and additional virtual sessions hosted by academic partners in Colombia, Morocco, and the United States.
