DebtCon brings together law and social science scholars, civil society representatives, and practitioners from the public and private sectors who work on sovereign debt, to help find creative solutions for urgent policy problems.
The first Interdisciplinary Sovereign Debt Research and Management Conference (DebtCon) was launched at the Institute of International Economic Law (IIEL) in January 2016. Its mission is to engage scholars and practitioners across geographic, disciplinary, and institutional boundaries to help solve pressing sovereign debt problems. DebtCon brings cutting-edge research to bear on policy and market practice, and helps make research more impactful with exposure to real-world policy and market experience.
