This Article focuses on the Anglo-American bankruptcy tradition. It adopts a doctrinal methodology to question the conclusion that “collectivity” is and should be a procedural, objective and secondary notion in light of two case studies. It suggests that in the context of cross-border, cross-disciplinary2 cases, equitable concepts could be employed to introduce a more nuanced understanding of the notion of “collectivity.” This should facilitate the recognition of foreign bankruptcy proceedings3 alongside with their inclusiveness, finality and certainty.
