WORKSHOP: Mercantile and Corporate Bankruptcy and Pre-Insolvency in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Century: Law and Economy (7 December 2018, Tilburg University)



We learned of a workshop on 19th-20th century insolvency law at Tilburg University. Attendance is free but with registration
This workshop addresses the highly topical theme of mercantile and corporate insolvency and insolvency regulations. Over the course of the past three decades insolvency legislation has come to embrace pre-insolvency compositions and has been orientated more to continuity and the preservation of the going-concern value of firms. The legal and economic history of insolvency needs further exploration. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the phenomena mentioned, in this workshop economic and legal historians reflect on the theme. The emphasis lies on methodological challenges in combining economic and legal-historical research. The presentations also tackle issues from a comparative perspective. This follows from the fact that the drafting of insolvency laws since the middle of the nineteenth century was often combined with borrowing and transplanting of legal arrangements and parts of law from elsewhere. The focus of the papers is on Western Europe.
