Insolvency and Restructuring Glossary 2016

Definition.jpgEntering in the legal area of restructuring in the EU, new legal terms will become part of our jargon. Cram-down, stay, restructuring and moratorium are just a few of them. This ‘Glossary of Terms and Descriptions in Insolvency’, has formed an Appendix, published in the Global Principles for Cooperation in International Cases (‘Global Principles’), drafted by prof. Ian Fletcher and myself, which were published in June 2012 by the American Law Institute (ALI) and International Insolvency Institute (III). Additions to this Glossary have been added in May 2016.

The two newly recruited doctoral researchers at the Department of Business Studies, Maral Darouei MSc and Niek Strohmaier MSc, have recently finalized an externally funded project for the research center of Tourism and Hospitalty of Belgium. As such, they conducted a brief literature review to identify possible causes of bankruptcies of hospitality businesses in Belgium.  These companies are believed to have a relatively higher risk of failure with respect to businesses in other industries in Belgium. The research project was supervised by Dr. Jean-Pierre van der Rest and Prof. Jan Adriaanse.
