International insolvencies are a common feature worldwide in business and finance sectors and the scale and frequency of such occurrences have caught the attention of many academics and commentators. Following on from the 2008 book, International Insolvency Law: Themes and Perspectives, this book presents up-to-date accounts of themes in the field of insolvency law. It deals with reforms in and challenges to the subject in relation to its comparative and international aspect. The cutting edge contributions include chapters from common law, civil and mixed traditions and have been conceived to increase awareness of the impact of insolvency law within domestic, regional and global contexts.

Useful and thought-provoking, the chapters take an innovative approach and give new interpretations to hitherto available material. This book will be invaluable for those wishing to keep abreast of developments in jurisdictions representing all legal traditions and is a useful guide to the improvement and reform of insolvency laws and frameworks.
