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.
