Rethinking Bretton Woods | Mon, Mar 28, 2016


On March 31 2016, RBW Project Director Aldo Caliari will speak at the panel “Economizing Justice in Times of Debt and Austerity.” The panel is part of the 110th American Society for International Law Annual Meeting, held in Washington DC from March 30 through April 2. Looking at the experience of countries that have recently undergone financial crises and implemented bank bailouts and austerity measures the panel will explore issues such as: how was the debt incurred and is it legitimate, how should the burden of adjustment be shared, what human rights obligations do the various international creditors have, and what should be expected of sovereign debt restructuring processes moving forward?
