Welcome to the inaugural Sovereign Debt Academy convened by the African Sovereign Debt Justice Network (AfSDJN). AfSDJN is a coalition of citizens, scholars, civil society actors and church groups committed to exposing the adverse impact of unsustainable levels of African sovereign debt on the lives of ordinary citizens.
The conference will provide opportunities for deeper engagement in research and knowledge-exchange on matters pertinent to the resolution of debt on the continent. The plenary will explore themes at the nexus between corporate insolvency law and sovereign restructuring law towards identifying the barriers to transnational solutions to debt resolution for countries across Africa. It will also feature insights from the experiences of various emerging economies.
