Corporate Insolvency in Transitional Economies: the Cases of China and Russia


Corporate insolvency has been an ever-growing topical issue to both developed and developing economies and has long been considered as one of the key indicators for measuring the performance of an economy. Corporate insolvency carries a particular significance in the post-socialist economy where market force gains primacy and credit industry has been taking its shape. This seminar surveys the legal development of corporate insolvency regimes in China and Russia, their mechanisms for facilitating the exit of ailing market participants, and their capacity to limit the impact on economic integrity arising from multiple defaults of credit.
