Dates:

  Add to Calendar 2019-10-29 12:00 2019-10-29 13:30 Europe/Paris Open debate: Argentina's Next Default? | PWC mini-conference on D&D (Debt and Default)

In the aftermath of the euro crisis, there is a tendency to put debt issues on the back burner. However, debt
levels are very high in some European countries and elsewhere and, in fact, a possible default and/or debt
restructuring is at the forefront in Argentina, one of the world most experienced countries on D&D!

The Pierre Werner Chair mini-conference, which is part of a project co-funded by the European Stability
Mechanism, will discuss ongoing research on D&D. An open, informal discussion on the current situation in
Argentina will take place before the main conference.
