Bank Recovery and Resolution
European legislators have recently proposed the introduction of a completely new regime for crisis management in the banking sector. Once enacted, this legislative initiative will bring about an unprecedented harmonization of European bank insolvency law. On May 23, 2013, the Hazelhoff Center for Financial Law at Leiden Law School and the Netherlands Association for Comparative and International Insolvency Law (NACIIL) organized a conference on the highly topical theme of recovery and resolution of credit institutions and investment firms. The key question to which answers were sought at this conference was: "Which rules should govern banks in difficulties?" This book contains papers presented at the conference, covering topics such as: the requirements for a rescue or recovery plan * bail-in and the position of counter-parties * the rule of law versus authorities discretion * the treatment of cross-border groups. In addition, the book includes a keynote plenary address paper, the reports of the workshops, as well as the report of the plenary discussion.
