Dealing Comprehensively, and Justly, with Sovereign Debt

Dealing Comprehensively, and Justly, with Sovereign Debt

Sovereign Debt at the Crossroads

Jack Boorman

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses ideas for resolving debt crises. It argues that a narrow focus on debt relief in HIPCs is insufficient and that the activist community and lenders must look to finding broader measures of foreign aid and creating a fair trading environment. In the end, finding the “right” level of debt relief is impossible and ignores the more important aim of delivering a better life to impoverished people. Support is given to a proposal floated by the IMF for a sovereign debt restructuring mechanism (SDRM) to resolve pending debt crises in developing countries.

Keywords:   debt crises, IMF, fair trading environment, sovereign debt restructuring mechanism, debt relief
