IPD's task force on Debt Restructuring and Sovereign Backruptcy has done crucial research and hosted numerous conferences in recent years. Drawing strength from our most recent conference on this topic, the March2015 Sovereign Debt conference provided a platform for an open discussion among policy makers, academics, lawyers and debtors who are concerned and involved in this important work.  In addition to inviting speakers and commentators from the academia and multilateral organizations, this conference extended welcome to ambassadors from different missions at the United Nations to join this high level debate. The program was codesigned by IPD and UNCTAD.
