Eugenio Vaccari (Editor), Emilie Ghio (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBook


The landscape of European insolvency law is in a state of constant evolution, driven by the need to address the complexities of a dynamic and interconnected economic environment. These conference proceedings, The Perpetual Renewal of European Insolvency Law, seek to explore and illuminate the multifaceted nature of insolvency law within the European context, highlighting its continuous development and adaptation in response to both internal and external challenges.
In recent years, European insolvency law has witnessed significant reforms aimed at harmonizing and modernizing legal frameworks across member states. The impetus for these reforms stems from the recognition that an effective and coherent insolvency regime is crucial for fostering economic stability, protecting creditor rights, and ensuring fair and equitable treatment of all stakeholders involved in insolvency proceedings. As businesses navigate through financial distress, the legal mechanisms in place must be robust yet flexible, providing avenues for restructuring and recovery while also facilitating orderly exits when necessary.
This book is a comprehensive examination of the current state of European insolvency law, tracing its historical roots, analysing recent legislative initiatives, and contemplating future directions. It brings together contributions from leading as well as emerging scholars and practitioners, offering diverse perspectives on the principles and practices that shape insolvency law across Europe.
Key themes explored in this volume include the harmonization efforts under the European Union's Insolvency Regulation, the impact of cross-border insolvencies, the role of courts and insolvency practitioners, and the interplay between insolvency law and other areas of law such as corporate governance, labour law, and finance. Each chapter delves into specific aspects of insolvency law, providing in-depth analysis and critical insights into the challenges and
opportunities that lie ahead.
The perpetual renewal of European insolvency law is not merely a legislative endeavour but a reflection of the broader economic, social, and political forces at play. As such, this book aims to serve as both a scholarly resource and a practical guide, offering readers a nuanced understanding of the evolving insolvency landscape and equipping them with the knowledge to navigate its complexities.
