Procedures for the Funding of Projects

Pursuant to the objectives of the organization, successful projects should have an international component.  This means that the projects should refer to the international dimension of insolvency – cross border issues, comparative issues, international standards, regional systems, and similar matters – or concern at least two or more jurisdictions.  Successful projects may be research or educational projects.  Research projects are those with a predominant original research component, aiming to advance the state of the art or to work towards law reform.  Educational projects are those that, although essentially descriptive in nature, provide a useful tool to the legal community, as well as those that contribute to the capacity-building of the institutions and professionals engaged in insolvency and the resolution of creditors’ rights. 

A successful project should address at least one of the following topics, or a substantially similar or related topic:

  • Cross-border insolvency, including jurisdiction, applicable law, institutional structure and setting;
  • Substantive and procedural insolvency law, including due process, commencement of an insolvency proceeding, governance, administration, clams and claim resolution procedures, reorganization, liquidation, and corporate groups;
  • Insolvency and micro, small and midsize (“MSME”) enterprises;
  • Insolvency and alternative dispute resolution mechanisms, including arbitration, mediation, and conciliation;
  • Secured transactions and insolvency;
  • Insolvency of banks, insurance companies, and systemically important financial institutions and entities; and
  • Sovereign insolvency.
  • Consistency with the goals of the organization (20%)
  • Theoretical and practical relevance (20%)
  • Timeliness of the topic (20%)
  • Qualifications and experience of the applicants (40%)
