Held at the Rixos Premium Dubrovnik, there will be 2 days of technical sessions (10 hours for CPE) with expert keynote speakers and panel discussions, as well as the usual ancillary meetings, networking opportunities and our wonderful Gala Dinner.

The city of Dubrovnik lies in the far south of the arc that forms Croatian soil, located on the thin coastal strip between the high hills and the calmness of the Adriatic sea. Dubrovnik is filled with outstanding natural beauty and many efforts have been made to preserve its varied ecological sites. The city offers an astonishingly clear blue sea, unique flora and fauna, scenic sunsets and a warm Mediterranean climate.

Counting only about 30,000 people, Dubrovnik is the cultural and social centre of the region, the County of Dubrovnik-Neretva and the most famous city of Croatia.

Known as “The Pearl of the Adriatic”, the city of Dubrovnik is featured by the fairytale appearance of the Old Town (a World Heritage site) and its white stone defensive walls with mighty forts and towers. More than two-thirds of the Old Town’s buildings suffered bomb damage and were entirely rebuilt after the Croatian War of Independence. Dubrovnik’s white walls reflect survival and resilience, a message of hope.

Keynote Speakers

This year we are very pleased to announce that we have secured four significant keynote speakers as well as academics and a broad range of panellists from our membership.

Boris Vujčić, Governor of the Croatian National Bank and chief negotiator when Croatia was applying to access the EU, will open our Congress with a keynote speech followed by José Garrido, Senior Counsel in the IMF’s Legal Department.

The second day of our Congress will be opened by Fabris Peruško, who has served as Extraordinary Commissioner of Agrokor since February 2018. Lord Justice Snowden from the Court of Appeal of England & Wales will then share with the audience his extensive experience in restructuring cases, followed by a discussion with other judges.


Technical Programme

Our facilitator in Dubrovnik will be Frances Coulson (Wedlake Bell, UK), who, along with her fellow Co-Chair Jelenko Lehki (Lehki Law Office, Croatia), and our expert technical committee, have been working on the technical programme. The overall theme is ‘Resilience in the face of adversity’ and will include key topics such as:
  • Designing the new European restructuring plans
  • Norwegian Air case
  • Risky Business - managing from the frontline
  • Healthcare industry cases
  • Adventures in asset tracking and recovery
  • Recognition of insolvency(-related) decisions: game of norms!
  • Harmonisation of Transactions Avoidance Laws
  • The dangers of cyberattacks
  • Restructuring regimes
  • Soft Skills vs Hard Skills
  • Energy sector in crisis
  • Harmonisation of Insolvency Laws in the EU: Update

INSOL Europe Academic Conference 2022: Dubrovnik, Croatia

INSOL Europe Academic Conference 2022: Dubrovnik, Croatia

Date
05-10-2022 to 06-10-2022
Location
Dubrovnik, Croatia


Registration is now open for the INSOL Europe Academic Forum's 18th annual conference, which will be held in Dubrovnik, Croatia, on Wednesday 5 October – Thursday 6 October 2022.
The overall academic conference's theme will be “Insolvency Law in Times of Crisis”.

Download the technical programme here.
As you will see in the link above, we once again have a broad selection of papers on cutting-edge topics in the fields of insolvency and restructuring, all this only half-year after our extremely well attended and received conference in Dublin. In Dublin, we could have attributed the number and the quality of papers submitted to us to the Covid-induced break in conference activities. However, the equally impressive number and quality of submissions attracted by our call for papers for Dubrovnik must really be taken as a sign of the impressive depth and breadth of academic research conducted in our field in Europe, and beyond. 

We are excited and proud that INSOL Europe’s Academic Forum has become the prime platform in which this research is presented, shared and debated in Europe. The one innovation that Dubrovnik will bring about is the new “Open Forum: The Implementation Agora” – the last session of the academic conference which, after an impromptu experiment in Dublin, will be open to the delegates of the main Congress as well. The open forum is intended to give academics and practitioners an opportunity to share and discuss their experiences with the implementation of the preventive restructuring directive across the EU in an informal setting, and we would very much like to invite delegates registered for the main conference to pop in to this last session on Thursday afternoon and participate in what we hope will be an event that will be entertaining as well as informative.

We look forward to meeting you all in Dubrovnik in October.
