Overcoming Developing Country Debt Crises

Edited by Barry Herman, José Antonio Ocampo, and Shari Spiegel

Initiative for Policy Dialogue

  • Draws on contemporary economic and financial theorizing to make the argument for a new initiative in dealing with sovereign debt difficulties.
  • Accessible to the educated lay reader, including non-specialists interested in the policy matters under discussion
  • Includes perspectives of civil society activists who helped mobilize public opinion to change policies, in particular, additional debt cancellation for the poorest countries in 1990s and this decade
  • Combines legal and economic analyses, subjects that are usually treated separately, as both economic and legal issues are essential to understanding the policy matters at issue
